TransForm the Life of a Child

Are you ready to change two lives? By making the decision to sponsor an NPH child, you will transform a child’s life forever, and your own life will be enriched.

Children at NPH are known as pequeños (Spanish for “little ones”), and our pequeños call their sponsors either padrino or madrina (Spanish for Godfather and Godmother). These endearing terms mean that you are an immediate and life-long member of our extensive NPH global family.


“My husband and I are happily sponsoring a child and are glad to be able assist in a modest financial way. I know being an advocate for the children, I can be the voice to inspire my godchild’s siblings to get sponsored, supporters to travel to an NPH home, or to donate whatever they can, . . . and, if a Pequeño ever needs a place to stay when visiting, then my door is open and the bed is made!”

~ Robin Forsberg – St. Louis Park, MN


Whether your Godchild lives with their NPH family or with their biological family in the community, you are helping to provide him or her with all they need to break the cycle of poverty: an education, clothing, food, healthcare, skills, values, and love.

Being a Godparent to an NPH child takes relatively little time but produces a bounty of blessings. Beyond your monthly sponsorship donation, you will be able to connect with your Godchild personally through correspondence and even visits. Sponsorship provides critical material and emotional assistance to help vulnerable children build a strong foundation of security, trust, and self-esteem.
