BECOMING A CHILD SPONSOR

 

Monthly sponsorship provides a child with a Christ-Centered education, daily breakfast and lunch programs, routine medical care and ongoing Biblical discipleship. We are personally involved in the lives of these kids, most of them we see seven days a week: at UKP Academy, Saturday at Kids Club and Sunday School. For this reason, we are able to provide our sponsors with a unique opportunity to connect with a child on a more personal level. We have even had sponsors come on a short term mission trip to visit us at UKP to meet their child face to face.
