Questions you might ask
  • Will I be able to communicate with my scholar?
    Yes! We do strongly encourage this, as it helps develop confidence in the child, further his/her learning, and make him/her a better person. You will be given a physical address and maybe other means of communication. If you desire, letters may be scanned and emailed to KCF
  • Can I give gifts to my child?
    Unfortunately, though we understand the noble desire to do so, we do not allow this unless it is a special occasion, such as a birthday, graduation, or similar event.
  • What if my child ask me for something?
    If this happens, unless there is an occasion (see above), please politely tell him or her that you are not allowed to do so.
  • What will happen if I cannot continue supporting the child?
    Sometimes, there are unavoidable situations that make it necessary to stop sponsorship. If this happens, we will try our best to place your child with another sponsor.
