Questions and Answers

How long must I be committed to sponsorship? There is no commitment, but we prefer sponsors to be committed to a child until they have finished their education (usually 18) if possible. Recently, older children have been finishing compulsory education and wanting to further their skills and work prospects by attending further education. Because this is more expensive, each child usually has a group of sponsors.
Does all my money go to my child?

Yes. 100% of specific sponsorship money is transferred to our partners. They keep back 5% in case your child needs medical or dental treatment. Each month they assess the child’s needs and buy what is appropriate with the other 95% of your donation. Any reclaimed tax is put into the BEATS’ General Fund, so that no child gets more money than any other child.


Do I find out what is bought with my money? Yes. Your child will tell you in letters what they have received with your money.
Anything else worth knowing? Yes. You will also receive information, photos, letters and sometimes DVDs. You may also visit your child if you wish. We are in regular contact with our partners, and questions (via email) are usually responded to promptly. Sponsors are encouraged to write occasionally to their child and send photos. Gifts may also be sent.
Quotes from Supporters of BEATS: “With BEATS we know exactly how our donations are being spent. Real people making a real difference on the ground.”  C. Madinaveitia

“I think it worthwhile supporting BEATS as it makes me feel personally involved with the lad I am helping. Updates from him and the team at BEATS help keep me informed with progress. Other charities seem to have a more distant attitude where I feel my money just goes into a big pot.” (J. Collins)
