How much of the sponsorship amount actually goes to the child? How do you allocate the funds among the five key sectors?

A maximum 20% of the S$45 is allocated for communication, public education and administrative costs. The remainder of your contribution is then allocated according to the needs of the community where your sponsored child is from. Some of the aspects that determine the use of the sponsorship contribution are ready infrastructure, traditions and culture, natural resources, and a community’s development phase. Depending on the level of necessity and development chronology, funds will be channelled to develop each area at varying amounts and at different stages.
