Frequently Asked Questions
Can I make a one-time donation?
Yes, there are many projects within an orphanage that need immediate funding. For more information on these projects please view our urgent needs page, or please click donate now at the top of the page.
Can I write a cheque for an entire year of sponsorship?
Yes, in order to set this up please contact email@example.com. You are still able to choose a child or children that you would like to support for a year or you can have us choose a child for you.
Can I correspond with my child?
Yes you are able to correspond by writing to your child/children. You can simply mail your letter to Imani Orphan Care and we will be sure that your letter reaches your sponsored child. There are also travel opportunities available to visit your sponsored child in Kenya. If this is of interest to you please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can these children be adopted?
Adoption is a great way to help orphaned children however this process is not an easy one and it is not always a reliable one. It is hard to understand why adopting a child has to be such a long uncertain process. To understand this process better please contact your provincial adoption agency as they have the knowledge required to make this adoption process happen. Even if all of the world’s 163,000,000 orphaned children were able to be eligible for adoption there just are not enough people who want to adopt or who can afford the adoption process. Thankfully we have the opportunity through sponsorship to give these children a better life and future. This is the best alternative that we presently have to help the orphaned children in the world.
Can $40/ month really provide what an orphaned child needs?
In developing countries, yes. The funds for child sponsorship go directly towards providing for shelter, food, clothing, education, spiritual instruction, and medical needs of the children in care through Imani homes.
Am I the only sponsor that my child has?
To completely cover the monthly costs associated with each child in care, a total of 3 sponsors/ child is required.
What happens to my sponsored child after graduation from high school?
We work hard with each child to put together an education plan best suited to their needs. Imani Orphan Care’s goal is to have our kids reach their full potential becoming competent educated adults able to support themselves.
How much of my sponsorship goes to my child?
Your child will receive $40.00/month of your support. Unlike many child sponsorship organizations that are charging high admin fees, donations made to Imani Orphan Care go directly to support our children in Kenya. Our passion is to help the kids thrive and we keep our expenses as low as possible. Imani Orphan Care is run by volunteers here in Canada, we have paid employees in Kenya caring for our Imani kids.
How much of my monthly support goes to admin fees?

Will I receive a tax receipt for my donation?
