As we seek to provide children with the support they need to survive and thrive, it is imperative that we ensure the safety of each child we serve. Child trafficking is a real and present threat to children in developing nations. We are committed and obligated to ensuring every child in our program is protected and safe.
For this reason, we carefully monitor communication between sponsors and their sponsored children. Part of your agreement as a sponsor is that you will NOT attempt to directly contact your sponsored child, their family, or local community members without permission from Childcare Worldwide. Emails, phone calls or visits directly to the child’s residence are not allowed without permission from and oversight by Childcare Worldwide staff.
While our goal is to help you and your sponsored child to develop as genuine a relationship as possible, please understand that we limit the specific identifying information we share about a child. We will share general information about where the child lives, but we will not release a child’s exact address or direct contact information.
