We started sponsoring our child in 2004 when she was 5 years old. She is now 21 years old and has a 2 year old baby. We believe that it is time to move on but are not sure how to do this. At this time we aren't able to sponsor another child. Please let us know the procedure we need to follow without hurting this young woman we have watched grow up. thank you.

Hi Carol! Words cannot express how grateful we are for the amazing difference you've made in Ambar's life over the past 15+ years! Please be assured that you have made a lasting impact in her life and her family, and she will not forget you! The maximum completion age for children in Ecuador is 22 years old. Since Ambar turns 22 on August 1, 2020, she is expected to graduate from the program in August of 2020. Please know that you are under no obligation to continue sponsoring Ambar if you have decided that you are done. However, I do encourage you to see Ambar to the finish line! Your encouragement through the coming months could help her finish strong with the hope of a bright future and courage to pursue her dreams :). That being said, if you would like to end your sponsorship, please let us know by emailing us at socialmedia@compassion.com, and we will be happy to take care of this for you. Please let us know if you have any additional questions or concerns. Have a blessed day!
