Big benefits found in sponsoring children
Sponsored children are more likely to finish high school, graduate from college and get a good job than children without that benefit, says the first study ever to look at whether such programs work. Unlike such well-known charities as Save the Children or World Vision, which use donations to pave roads or build wells and schools, the "pure sponsorship" charities shower practical help like tutoring, health care and enrichment activities on specific children. -- About 65 percent of sponsored children graduated from high school, with the best results in Africa, where education levels were lower to begin with. -- About 7.8 percent of sponsored children graduated from college, "a remarkable rate among low-income families in developing countries," Wydick said. The researchers also conducted a follow-up study of children currently being sponsored and found them more hopeful and with higher aspirations for school and work than their peers, Wydick said. Compassion International "showed a lot of courage," said Wydick, noting that results of the study can be extrapolated to other, similar programs that sponsor more than 9 million children worldwide. "A primary objective of this extended contact is to raise the child's self-esteem, aspirations and self-expectations," the study found. Children from all backgrounds are welcome, but "all families must allow their children to participate in the program's Christian religious instruction," the study says. The parents of sponsored children typically are farm workers, maids, custodians or other holders of menial jobs. 'Very credible' resultsMichael Carter, whose research consortium, BASIS, at UC Davis kicked in about $50,000 to help fund the study, said the contribution was well spent. "The overall driving force is how do you break the cycle of poverty and undercut child labor," Carter said, adding that he'd like know whether child-centered programs or those like Save the Children that use the money to build schools and other village projects are most helpful.

Keep Girls in the Picture.
Girl Most Likely To: Start a Revolution
This ‘Disposable’ Girl Became The Most Educated Person in Her Village. Seen as disposable in their own homes, the destiny of girls in poor rural villages like Schti in northern India is to marry early and move out to live with another family, continuing the cycle of girls’ illiteracy — and poverty — for the next generation.“My brothers had gone to school, but I thought I’d never experience it,” Pinki recalls. “It was out of the question.”
