Rather than disclosing specific information about the student, ethical sponsorship lets the student decide what he or she wants to share. Children’s Future will provide general context to help you understand what types of problems your student will face, but ultimately the student can choose what information is shared.
We also approach sponsorship differently with the students. Our students know that donors abroad support the Children’s Future’s work. And, they know that we like to keep our donors updated about their progress. But, in order to preserve each child’s self-esteem, we do not divulge any individual sponsorship information, nor do we connect students and sponsors directly.
