Two of the children I sponsor are in their last year of school. What happens after that. One just wrote to me that she hopes to go to the university and become a doctor. Is there any way to continue to help her with her goal?

Beth, look on your "My Account" page online for each of your children. There you will find a completion date. One of my boys in Kenya graduated from high school. I sent a financial gift and actually helped him and his older brother who was already in college pay some of their fees. I want to send another gift soon because it has been a while. If your student has time left in the Compassion after their graduation from high school, send a financial gift to help them go to college.

I also have an older child in Kenya. How do you decide how much to send to help university tuition? Do you send a monetary gift in a regular basis..?!

Jenny, we recommend you send as you feel led. It is up to you to decide what is in your budget and what you can cheerfully give. We do discourage monthly gifts to avoid developing a dependency on those gifts. That said, if you are interested, you might consider sending $100-$300 once a year in the summer or a few months before the next school year would begin and designate the gift for school.

I was only told about the LDP program not the finishing well program so I didn't know it changed its name
