You can provide a Seventh-day Adventist® education and daily lunch for a disadvantaged child in Cambodia who would otherwise have no hope of an education or learning about God’s love. You may also sponsor a student at Karen Adventist Academy, a K-12 school located in the Mae Ra Moo Refugee Camp on the border of Myanmar (Burma) and Thailand. Sponsoring a child at this school made of bamboo and teak leaves will leave an indelible mark on each life and he or she will be forever grateful.
When you begin sponsoring your student, we will send you a profile that includes a picture and information such as what he or she is learning in school, what his or her families are like, and how God is impacting his or her life. This profile will also include a list of prayer points that can guide you in how to pray for your child as well as other students. You will receive thank you cards, picture crafts, and other personal updates from your child at least once per year.
We do not allow direct communication between sponsors and students in order to prevent inequalities. However, if you would like to join ASAP for a mission trip and have the opportunity to meet your sponsored student, we encourage you to do so!
Before you choose to give we ask that you make a commitment to at least one year of donation. Student sponsorship is $20 a month per student at any of our schools. You may give a monthly gift of $20, a quarterly gift (once every three months) of $80 or a yearly gift of $240.
Students at ASAP's Feed and Read schools often come from non-Christian backgrounds and so Adventist education is really having a positive impact on their lives. One of the most profound ways that this is happening is through learning how to pray, and more specifically, united prayer which students and teachers participate in each day. Here is just one example:
