Q: I was hoping to write letters to the child to encourage them, so I'm curious as to how The 6:3 Exchange approach "protects" the child.
A: We have less than 60 children living in a tight-knit community and since kids are kids, we want to avoid any opportunity that would cause our kids to feel jealous, envious, or unloved. If we had one sponsor writing frequently to their sponsored child, while their house-mate never received letters, our kids would compare themselves to their peers and feelings would be hurt.
Q: If I came to Cherish, can I not meet my child?
A: You absolutely could meet your sponsored child, however, the child would remain unaware that you are their sponsor. We would arrange time for you spend and get pictures with your sponsored child's house as a whole.
Q: Does my donation go directly toward the care of my sponsored child?
A: Great question! Your donation goes toward the operations of our homes as a whole. If "Child A" is partially sponsored, while "Child B" is fully sponsored, both children can be equally cared for. Your sponsorship simply connects you to a face to see the wonderful impact our homes team is making on our children.
