How can I support LLA?
We welcome all kinds of support, whether from individuals, families, or organizations. You can donate, sponsor a child, or even run your very own fundraising campaign to support LLA. Donations and sponsorship can be done directly through our website.
What is the difference between sponsorship and general donation?
Sponsoring a child does more than providing for this child. Sponsorship creates a ripple effect that touches not only the children that are being sponsored but also their whole families, even their communities, and creates a change that will carry on for future generations. Furthermore, sponsorship creates a deep connection between the child and the sponsor that often lasts for a lifetime. Sponsoring children enables them to know that they are loved, supported, and that someone deeply cares for them.
General donations provide support for all of our operations including the sponsorship program and are directed toward the areas where they are most needed and will be used to their full potential.
How can I sponsor a child?
To sponsor a child, you can visit our Sponsorship page. If you have specific preferences or age group of children that you want to sponsor, please send us a message using our contact form and we will do our best to satisfy your preference.
