Okoa Sponsorship

Okoa cares for two categories of sponsored children. The first kind are Residential. This means that they live at Okoa full time. Okoa is family and Okoa is home. The second kind are community kids. They live in their homes, but are sponsored by Okoa's Community Empowerment Program. 

CORRESPONDENCE

Sponsors will hear from their child at least once every quarter. Letters will be sent to the email address provided (so make sure it's correct!) and often include photos and drawings from the child. Sponsors are also encouraged to write letters to their child. Letters should be emailed to sponsorship@okoarefuge.org. 

VISITING

Okoa encourages all sponsors to come and visit their children! Visits occur during Okoa mission trips and so be sure to check out trip dates! If you happen to be in country for any other reason, please send an email to sponsorship@okoarefuge.org for details on what the process would be to see your child.

GIFTS

Every child loves receiving gifts and the Okoa kids are no different!

  • Suggested gifts for younger children include: dolls, clothes, balls, bubbles, chalk or coloring books.

  • Suggested gifts for older kids include: clothes, hoodies, ball caps, art paper, or journals.

An online gift store is coming soon!


Residential Program

These children receive everything they need from Okoa. This includes love, housing, meals, medical care, daily needs, mentoring and education. Okoa works diligently to find families for these children, but sometimes it is not possible. For those children, Okoa is and always will be "home."

Program Fees

In order to provide excellent care for the children, Okoa needs at least $150/mo per child. For anyone who is unable to sponsor at that amount, fees have been divided into $25 increments. Please note that "full" sponsorship is $150. Unless a sponsor is the first to sign up and donates at the level of $150, the child might have multiple sponsors.

Children with an asterisk (*) require specialized medical care. Their sponsorship fees are $250/mo.

Sponsorship fees received above and beyond a child's set amount will be used to cover the cost of unsponsored kids.

Note: To become a monthly sponsor, be sure to select the 'Create Recurring Transaction?" box when you are entering your payment information - that will ensure that you are setting up a recurring child sponsorship rather than a one-time gift to the program.

community empowerment program

The CEP focuses on keeping children in healthy families and preparing them for the future. Okoa provides one healthy meal per day, mentoring, counseling, medical care and education.

Program Fees

Okoa needs at least $50/mo per primary student enrolled in our empowerment program. Students to advance on to secondary school, require $100/mo in order to cover higher school fee prices. For anyone who is unable to sponsor at that amount, fees have been divided into $25 increments. Please note that "full" sponsorship is either $50 or $100. Unless a sponsor is the first to sign up and donates at the level of $50/$100, the child might have multiple sponsors.

Sponsorship fees received above and beyond a child's set amount will be used to cover the cost of unsponsored kids.

Note: To become a monthly sponsor, be sure to select the 'Create Recurring Transaction?" box when you are entering your payment information - that will ensure that you are setting up a recurring child sponsorship rather than a one-time gift to the program.

Family and resettlement program

The goal of the Family and Resettlement Program is two fold. The primary goal is to keep children in healthy families. Secondarily, when Okoa enters into a situation where a child has already been separated from his/her caregiver, social workers work diligently to address the challenges of the family that speparated them in the first place. Naturally, this is different for every family. After working hand in hand with the care givers and ensuring a healthy environment for raising their child, Okoa resettles and reunites the child back home.

In order to ease the financial burden, these children are still sponsored and followed up by Okoa's social work department. Okoa provides mentoring and counseling for both the child and the caregiver, medical care and education.

Program Fees

Okoa needs at least $50/mo per primary student enrolled in the Family and Resettlement Program. Disabled children require specialized medical care and, therefore, their fees are $100/mo. For anyone who is unable to sponsor at that amount, fees have been divided into $25 increments. Please note that "full" sponsorship is either $50 or $100. Unless a sponsor is the first to sign up and donates at the level of $50/$100, the child might have multiple sponsors. Sponsorship fees received above and beyond a child's set amount will be used to cover the cost of unsponsored kids.

Children with an asterisk (*) require specialized medical care. Their sponsorship fees are $100/mo.

Note: To become a monthly sponsor, be sure to select the 'Create Recurring Transaction?" box when you are entering your payment information - that will ensure that you are setting up a recurring child sponsorship rather than a one-time gift to the program.
