How much does it cost?
Sponsoring a child costs $25 a month or $300 for a full year. This covers the cost of one child to participate in our Viva Hope Community Center.

You will be covering the costs of one child that participates in our Viva Hope Community Center. Our program is not designed to specify one particular child.
Can a child still participate in Viva Hope programs without being sponsored?
Yes. Whether or not a child is sponsored, every child is welcomed into our Viva Hope programs. Sponsorship allows sufficient resources that all our kids need. Sponsorship allows us the ability to create unique opportunities for these children to interact with Christian adult role models.

These children come from a variety of backgrounds, but the following statistics should provide you a snapshot into the reality of many of their lives. In Brazil, over 40% of children and adolescents (14 years or younger) live in impoverished homes - a total of 17.2 million young people. Those facing extreme poverty amount to 5.8 million, or 13.5%. Poverty is defined as half of the monthly household income per capita (US$277) and extreme poverty is one fourth of the same. Also, statistics reveal that 18.4% of murders committed in Brazil in 2016, claimed the lives of 10,676 young people under the age of 19. Most of these youth (80.7%) were killed by gunfire.
