Through Designed for Life and Project 12 we are in constant awe of God’s goodness and how He is using the Sisterhood to carry the message of the Gospel to those who need to hear it! That is why we are thrilled to be in partnership with the ministry of OneChild.
OneChild is making a difference all around the world – bringing hope, truth, life, love and mercy to nearly 40,000 children living in poverty. By working alongside indigenous churches they help to equip each and every sponsored child to meet their God-given potential.
Over the past 10 years through Designed for Life, we have sponsored over four thousand children and we would like to take this opportunity to invite you to join us in strengthening this effort by personally sponsoring a child.
When you sponsor a child, it not only makes an eternal impact in that child’s life, but their family as well by providing nutritional support, medical aid, educational assistance, and most importantly to hear about God’s love for them.
If we all work together, we can change the world… one child at a time!

Children’s Best Hope: A Strong Church
Our vision for the church is global: The body of Christ growing, strong, united. If the church is strong in a poverty-stricken community, we know that we can effectively help the children living there. A strong local church partner is one of our prerequisites for ministry. And that ministry isn’t possible without the support of the church in the U.S.
We’re building a
community of hope.
OneChild sponsors provide encouragement, love and support to children living in poverty. And they empower an entire community of caring individuals who walk alongside those children as they grow. Through that community, sponsorship provides the resources and opportunities children need to rise above their circumstances and reach their potential in Christ. In fact, recent research demonstrates that child sponsorship is one of the most effective ways to combat global poverty. There’s real power in one person reaching out to one child through community—power that changes both lives!
Sponsorship with OneChild helps children grow in…
Your child has the opportunity to learn about God and His purpose for their life.
Your child gets help with their studies and is taught problem-solving, leadership, literacy, and life skills.
Your child is provided nutritious food and supplements and has access to medical check-ups and immunizations to fight common diseases.
Your child is encouraged to socialize with others and receives instruction in sports, music, and drama.
WHERE WE SERVE
OneChild sponsors empower the loving community that surrounds each child in our care. You can provide education, medical care, spiritual support, and hope to a child in desperate need.
We are accountable to the children we serve AND to our donors.
Our accountability to our donors is one of our highest priorities. Our goal is to use the funds entrusted to us as wise stewards. To do this requires continued monitoring of our fund distribution. OneChild is also a member in good standing with the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA)
