Child sponsorship programme
Child Sponsorship Programme is a fix-amount donation programme. It aims to generate revenue to develop and enhance the services of children, youth and families, and also to facilitate the Kuk’s children in experiencing the concern and love of the community.
Residential Child Care Service is the earliest service provided by Po Leung Kuk. We render 24-hour comprehensive care for the children and youth who are lacking proper family care. Various services including education, medical services, counselling services, developmental and diversified recreational services are provided for the children and youth to facilitate and nourish their proper physical, mental and moral development. The children are residing in sections located at our Headquarters and in small group homes outside Po Leung Kuk. Every living unit – a House, is like a family, in which children are like “brothers” and “sisters” and there are “parents” to take care of them. There are over 30 Houses under the Residential Child Care Service.
Child Sponsorship is totally different from legal adoption, and it does not create any legal relationship between the donor and his/her sponsored child. Joining the Child Sponsorship Programme is purely a benevolent act and will not give any privilege or priority to a sponsor who may also be interested in adoption.
For sake of child’s welfare, the Kuk may reject an application for joining the Programme.
Join the Sponsorship Programme at around HK$4 per day
