Your relationship with the child
Each and every child is very proud to hear that sponsors from all over the world are ready to support them on the way to a bright and dignified future!
If you wish, you can visit the child you sponsor once a month (write to us one week in advance). Therefore, you have the possibility to develop a sustained relationship. Without becoming a substitute for parental figure, you embody a positive role model and participate in TARA’s work by restoring the trust of the child you sponsor in adults surrounding him.
You will receive two letters or drawings each year during the school holidays. Indeed, the youngest children in TARA Tots develop fine arts before being able to write and are always very enthusiastic about sharing their creations with the people who matter to them. TARA Girls and TARA Boys are more keen on telling you about their lives in letters (as soon as they know English!). If you choose to sponsor a home you will receive the letters or drawings of all the children of the home.
Our sponsors usually support us over the long term, which allows them to measure the sustained impact of TARA, the progress of the children and their empowerment.
They trust us
When you sponsor a child in Delhi at TARA, you make a long lasting impact and participate in a profound social change in India. You give him all the keys to change and to impact the life of his family and community. Once independent and empowered, the children who grew up in TARA will indeed be able to transmit their values and skills, thus contributing to fighting poverty and illiteracy in India in the long run.
When you sponsor a child, you give him new hope and a future he deserves. You participate in building a fairer society in India by choosing to act against social inequalities and to build a generation of educated, independent and responsible citizens.
One day, these children who mostly came to TARA with haggard looks, emotionally traumatized or suffering from severe malnutrition, will stand on their own feet. When they leave TARA, the frightened children have given way to shooting stars ready for a galaxy of possibilities.
This is the story we want to share with you when you sponsor a child.
