By committing to sponsor a widow or orphan at Esther’s House, you are not only helping meet their immediate needs; you are making an investment in their future. Thanks to your support, we provide over 80 children with a warm meal, tutoring, skills training and discipleship every day. We give them medical treatment, clothes, shoes and lots and lots of hugs. We house 8 children without homes on our campus where they are growing up in the care of loving house parents. And we supply 70 widows with seeds and fertilizer to grow their crops, cloth to sew dresses for themselves and medical care. Above all, we make sure everyone we serve hears the message of Jesus’ great love for them. When you choose to sponsor someone, you make all this possible for them– and you make a friend in Malawi while you’re at it! We’re committed to building relationships between sponsors and those they support: you’ll get the chance to send your child letters and packages, you’ll get the chance to visit them and you’ll watch them grow up.

Change a life. Sponsor someone today.

Q: What does sponsorship cover?

A: For the orphans living at Esther’s House, sponsorship provides a comfortable place to live with house parents, three meals a day, school fees, clothes, discipleship—basically everything a child needs to grow up healthy and in the love of Jesus.

For the orphans living in our community, sponsorship provides a warm meal every day, after-school tutoring, skills training, basic medical care and discipleship.

For the widows, sponsorship provides seeds and fertilizer for every planting season, a new roof before the rainy season, medical care and one meal a week.


Q: How can I connect with the person I am sponsoring?

A: If you’re sponsoring a child, we’ll send you updates on that child 3-4 times a year. We’ll also help you exchange letters with the child you’re sponsoring so that you can develop a genuine relationship with them. If you want, we can even arrange a visit for you! We can’t let you send them packages for customs reasons, but if you want to give them a special gift, you can deposit money in an account for them and we’ll go out and buy them something nice.

Since the widows we care for are quite old, some of them have gone to be with Jesus—so we’re always adding new women and the program is always changing. For that reason, we don’t pair sponsors with individual women like we do with the children. You’ll still get updates though! We profile a different widow every month so you can still get to know the women your sponsorship is helping.


Q: How can I set up a payment or change my payment information?

A: You can pay by credit card or draft the money directly out of your bank account. We’ll get your payment information from you when you sign up to be a sponsor.

If you ever need to change your billing information, just log in to your account and go to Settings–> Payment Sources. Or feel free to call our help number at (844) 787-3242 and we can walk you through it!


Q: How long should my sponsorship last?

A: We’ll keep taking care of the children in our program until they’re done with secondary school. We would love it if you would be able to continue sponsoring your child throughout the entirety of their time at Esther’s House. But if you ever need to discontinue your sponsorship, we understand and we’ll help you do that. Please just contact us and let us know. Please allow up to 30 days for us to cancel your sponsorship.
