A $38 monthly sponsorship provides a child with school fees, medical care, lunch, a school uniform, and the tools to improve
We believe that empowerment happens when people learn to provide for themselves. AOET communities focus on teaching skills and giving confidence for a happy life.
We encourage all of our donors to personally engage with the children they sponsor. We suggest writing letters, sending pictures, or even traveling to the community!
We are a Christian organization compelled by the desire to help those in need, but are careful to respect community beliefs, no matter what.
