Child Sponsorship Program

You Can Change a Child's Life

Dove's Youth Center is a "safe haven" for children ages 6-18, providing an opportunity to learn, laugh and share positive experiences in a safe environment. Without participation in the Center, many of these children would be forced into prostitution, drug dealing or other illegal activities. 


The Youth Development Center Child Sponsorship Program is designed to foster self-esteem, cooperation, respect, responsibility, goal setting and leadership. Our programs empower these children to be agents of change in their own lives and communities.

By sponsoring a child registered with Dove, you are sponsoring:

  • The child's costs in Dove programs (teachers, materials, daily snacks, etc.)

  • The monthly basket of groceries the child and their family receive from Dove 

As a child sponsor, you will receive an invitation to a private Facebook group (sharing information about the sponsored children and their activities), a Dove Newsletter for program updates, and U.S. tax deductible receipts.

  • Our monthly child sponsorship is $50 USD. 

  • You can sign up for monthly or annual recurring payments.

  • You may request a girl or a boy. The next one on the waiting list will be chosen, and you will be notified via email and furnished with a picture, information about your child and how to interact with them. Contact:
