Women’s Center Sponsorship
Our women’s center is run and taught by Haitian professionals. Skilled teachers train women in four areas: cooking, sewing, literacy, and craft work. Each program is 9 months in duration. Then, the women can opt to continue with the speciality with which they started or move to another class. Many women start in the literacy program and move to one of the other life skills programs. Sponsorships allow these women to receive their education, 1-2 meals per day, facilities and resources, Bible study, fellowship, worship, and a sense of community.
Cité Soleil Student Sponsorship
Heartline Ministries partners with a school in Citi Soleil, a slum neighborhood with high crime and violence, to provide children with the opportunity for an education. In Haiti, all schooling requires tuition. Most of these children’s families do not have the resources to allow their children to attend school. That’s where you can come in! Sponsorship of the students is $42/month. This is a yearly commitment, and your support will cover the child’s tuition, school supplies, uniform costs, and a meal during school.
Men’s Bakery Sponsorship
The men’s discipleship program builds godly character traits while teaching the men how to run their own businesses. It’s an effort to create more opportunity for these men to lift their families out of poverty. This program runs six months, and in addition to what the women learn, the men receive driving and English language lessons. We welcome you as a sponsor to send letters, photos, encouragements, and Scripture to your sponsored individual, creating relationships. We even provide opportunities for you to travel to meet your sponsored individual through our mission experiences! The sponsorships are $58/month for 12 months for both the women and men’s programs.

Why choose sponsorship?
As Heartline Foundation and Heartline Ministries are expanding sponsorship programs this year, some may be asking what the sponsorships really accomplish. Why choose sponsorship? Below are our top five reasons you might consider as you decide whether or not to support one of our women, men, or the youth programs available for sponsorship:
First, your commitment to pray for your sponsored individual or program is crucial. We know from James 5:16 that the prayers of the righteous are powerful. Second, your monthly financial support allows these individuals to gain educational, physical, nutritional, emotional, and spiritual blessings on a daily basis. These blessings turn into opportunities – ones that never would have been realized without your support.
Matthew 25:40 is a difficult Scripture to read through if you have never intentionally served, supported, or helped the least, the lost, the poor, the widow, or the orphan. As Christians, it is part of our responsibility to love and serve others, and when we do, we are loving and serving Jesus Himself.
Yes, your financial support would be to serve one of the individuals in our program or a specific initiative like the summer camp. It doesn’t end there. The wider community in Haiti benefits from your support as well. Your sponsored individuals will learn skills that will be introduced to the workforce in Haiti, helping to raise families out of poverty. More importantly, your sponsored individual will be taking what they have learned about the Gospel and what it means to live a Christian life to their families and community as well.
Sponsorship provides an opportunity for your children to learn about other people around the world and how they live. It provides a level of understanding and appreciation for what they have that cannot be taught with just words. It also provides a cultural understanding that helps them grow in maturity. Finally, it teaches them how to serve others in more than one way.
The most common feedback we hear regarding sponsorships is that the sponsors themselves get so much out of it, possibly more than those being sponsored. God is so generous. When we give, He provides. God provides the joy. Joy is found in knowing you have made a difference. Joy is found as you learn that your sponsored individual has graduated from a program and found a secure job. Joy is found when you look back and realize that you missed out on nothing as you gave your monthly contribution, yet the recipient received so much. (Luke 6:38)
