This program serves orphaned children living with extended family or friends. While these children are fortunate enough to have a home, they often don't receive the food, healthcare, education and nurturing they need. So we open Esther's House to them every day after school: they come to us for tutoring, a hot meal, skills training and spiritual discipleship. Inside our walls, they are loved, valued and taught about Jesus.
Our residential program provides inclusive care for vulnerable children who are unable to find care anywhere else. We take these children into the Esther's House family where they are cared for by Malawian house parents all living on the Esther's House campus.
Some students in the programs at Esther's House have been selected to attend a private boarding. This opportunity isn't something we can offer every student, but time spent at Kings will offer these children quality education unmatched in Malawi.
Esther's house provides a support system for elderly women who have lost their husbands. We work to meet not only their physical needs, but their need for community. We help them repair their homes, we provide them seeds and fertilizer to grow their crops and we give them medical care as they age.

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.
