Q - Can I meet my sponsored child? 

A - Yes, we actually encourage that you try to build a relationship with your sponsored child. Feel free to send encouraging notes, or maybe even birthday presents and/or Christmas gifts. If you are ever in Costa Rica on a mission trip or vacation, simply let us know and we will coordinate a visit for you. We do ask that you send all notes and gifts through 6:8 Ministries. This helps us maintain control and allows us to follow up with thank you notes. 




Q - How do you select the children in the program?

A - The children in the program are selected on criteria of financial need and their relationship with the 6:8 Ministries staff. We want to have a ministry relationship with the children and the family.  



Q - Can I check on the academic progress of my sponsor child?

A - Yes, all you need to do is email Ashly (ashly@68ministries.com) and she will send you a copy of the most current report card for your sponsored child.
