Sponsoring a child with World Vision has always been my personal aspiration.
From the time I received my first paycheck, I was always thinking about when I would feel financially stable and comfortable to commit to a lifetime of child sponsorship. I finally did it as my 25th birthday present to myself. I may have accomplished it earlier if I knew it can also be a group sponsorship, where multiple persons sponsor 1 child.
To clarify, World Vision does not have a group child sponsorship program. But this is being practised by groups of people who want to sponsor collectively.
