AMU offers three possibilities to support vulnerable children:
1) For some years now, AMU has launched a new form of sponsorship: instead of sponsoring a single child, it is possible to sponsor a collectivity, such as a school class, or a social project in Latin America or in Africa. We have decided to focus more on this form of collective sponsorship, which does not put a specific individual at the centre but allows a group of young people or teenagers to benefit from this ongoing support. A sponsorship system ensures a certain regularity and predictability for the project concerned and can thus ensure the running of the project.
The donor can choose the project to be supported and will receive, at least once a year, news about the project and the children and young people benefiting from it. All sponsored projects are implemented and monitored by trusted local AMU partners, with whom AMU successfully manages projects and has regular contact.
The donor is free to choose the amount with which he wishes to support his sponsored project (e.g. 15, 30 or 50 € per month). The sponsorship can be terminated at any time.
The proposed collective/project sponsorships are :
Compared to a sponsorship, which is a long-term commitment, there is the possibility of helping a child in need on a punctual basis by making a single donation to our NGO with the mention "solidarity". This donation can help a family to fund an expensive operation for their child, to buy a prosthesis, glasses, the necessary school material,...
Child sponsorships however are still possible. These are not managed by AMU Luxembourg, but the management is ensured by our Italian partner "AFNonlus - Sostegno a Distanzia" which manages child sponsorships throughout the world.
For less than 1€ per day a child can be sponsored; the sponsorship costs 28€ per month and 336€ per year. Thanks to these sponsorships, the child receives an adapted diet, adequate school support, proper hygiene and medical care (if needed).
AMU transfers the amount of the sponsorships to AFNonlus and receives in return the letters that AMU translates and transmits to the sponsors.
It should be noted that a sponsorship is a long-term commitment. Please contact us for more information. Your donations are tax deductible.
