Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q1: Why most of the children are studying only in Christian Schools?
  • A:  The only reason is that the Christian schools in India are generally known to better schools. It has nothing to do with the religion. We can educate our children in any good schools. However, in doing so, the standard of education will be the primary criterion, and of lesser importance will be factors such as proximity to the neighborhood or the ease of commute, specific needs of a child. We invite our friends and sponsors to suggest better choices. 

  • Q2: Why most of the children are studying in Seventh-day Adventists Schools at all the locations?
  • A: The reasons why they are studying in Seventh-day Adventists Schools are because of the following: 1. Sam Vonumu studied in SDA institutions within and outside India, and had a positive and gratifying experience. 2. Sam also has several friends and well wishers who are associated with the SDA institutions, They are teachers, principals or school administrators, who can closely monitor the children's progress and time to time give valuable feedback. 3. Most of the schools charge admission fees and take donations at the time of a new admission. SDA schools do take donations like other schools in India. But for us, they have waived the donations, school fund fee etc. because Sam is an ex student of SDA institutions and we are a Not-for-Profit organization. 

  • Q3: Can we help poor children in other states?
  • A: Yes, you can. It does not matter in which state or in which country. Because all children are precious and we want to help poor and needy ones everywhere regardless of their religion, nationality or gender. However, we would need volunteers in other states to help us. They should be willing to spend the required time and assume full responsibility for the children being sponsored in their states. If you know someone who is trustworthy and can help us, please let us know. 

  • Q4: How can I become a Sponsor?
  • A: All you need to do is be 1. Willing to help. 2. Able to make a long-term commitment. 3. Financially capable of paying for the sponsored child's school expenses every year. 

  • Q5: Do I need to be committed for 12 Years to be a sponsor?
  • A: Only if possible, you must make a commitment to help the sponsored child for 12 to 13 years. Our aim is to help each child from lower kindergarten through the 10th Class (or 11th) to complete highschool (or higher secondary) -- a total of 12 (or 13) years.

  • Q6: What happens if I discontinue after supporting the child for some years due to financial problems?
  • A: Uplift a Child International will continue with your child wherever you leave off.

  • Q7: Can we communicate with the child whom we are helping?
  • A: Yes, you can communicate with them directly. You will be provided with the details, including the address.

  • Q8: How much does it cost per child and what it includes?
  • A: In the past, for some children Uplift a Child International paid only the tuition fees, and for some others both tuition fee as well as the cots of books and other related expenses. Additionally, we paid for hostel for some of the children. However,we would like to adopt a more uniform and equitable approach and from now on the entire new enrollment will receive the following.
