My sponsored child mentioned in his last letter that the does not have his own Bible. Is there a way to give one to him? How can I purchase one for him? Thank you1

Hi Tricia! All of the children in our programs receive an age appropriate bible within the first year that they are in the program. In Uganda, they receive another bible when they have been in the program for two and three years as well. Sometimes the children will keep the bible at the student center for safe keeping so it could be that he is saying that he does not have a bible at home. 

In any case, you are more than welcome to send a child gift and recommend that he receive a bible. To send a gift, please visit the My Account section and click the button for Additional Giving. Use the drop down for Child Gift to select the amount. At the end of check out, click the link that says "I have special instructions regarding this donation." In the space provided, enter a note that you would like this gift to be used for a bible.

Hi there! Yes, we will buy an age appropriate bible in their own language as part of the program. We cannot guarantee that a specific type of bible will be purchased if you send an additional gift. We do not buy and ship the bibles. Rather, we purchase them in country so the same bibles may not be available that would be available here in the states.
