I would like to pass this idea to all of you who read this Blog. What I would like to do is to post pictures of the children at Bethany with brief details and allow each child the opportunity to have a sponsor. The child /sponsor would I hope communicate with each other passing information on each others lives and achievements. This would give a child the opportunity to find out about life outside of the Philippines not so important in it's early years but very important as that child grows and matures. The sponsor could track the childs progress through its formative years and it may lead to a long lasting friendship. The cost of such sponsorship would be left entirely to the sponsor as would be any gifts of clothes, toys or books etc.I would like the sponsorship to be almost like a pen friendship please let me know what you think of this idea.
