Meet some amazing kids

India is home to over 1.2 billion people.  Half live on less than $3.10 per day.   Of all nations, India has the largest illiterate population. Join our effort to change these statistics by sponsoring a child.  As a faith based organization, your sponsorship helps not just your child, but the child's entire family with things like food, clothes, education, and sound Biblical teaching. Please sponsor a child by signing up today!

Why sponsor a child through CFI?

With tears streaming down their cheeks many mothers have told us that without the help of the CFI Child Sponsorship Program, they and their children would starve.  For women like this, sponsoring a child truly is the difference between life and death.   When you sponsor a child through CFI, your funds benefit an entire family with things like food, clothing, an education and  the emotional and spiritual support of  caring  local pastors.

Your sponsorship will provide the most important gift of all to a child living in poverty – HOPE.

E Jeevanandham’s father is a daily laborer earning a very meager wage and only when there is work.  It is hard to put food on their table each day.  They are Hindu but he comes to Sunday school each week.

Madippakkam is a slum area on the outskirts of Chennai in South India.  It is a very poor area and most of the people live in shacks put together flimsy with a thatched roof.  Most do not have running water, they go to a common well.
