I was just curious how often they update pictures and if possible if they can take the picture when the child first knows they are sponsored

Hi Crystal! We take the child's initial photo when they are first enrolled in the program and then every two years after that. Sadly, we don't take the child's photo after they are first sponsored. Though I know it would be a wonderful surprise for sponsors to see the joy on their child's face when they learn they have been sponsored, doing that for every child when they are sponsored actually does take the staff's attention away from engaging directly in the program activities with the children. I love your heart for these kids though, and know you just want to see your kiddos faces filled with excitement :)!

So if they haven't been updated picture wise in before I sponsored them does that mean I'll receive a newer photo for them? This is my first time sponsoring so I was just wondering,

The kids get their photo updated every two years whether they have a new sponsor in that timeframe or not. Your Radaisa should have an updated photo around September 2017, while Akpedje should have a new photo update around January 2018.
