Do children ever leave the sponsorship programme early? This can happen, but it’s rare. Sometimes a caregiver dies, leaving another family member to look after the child. This means the child may move to a different district that Amigos doesn’t operate in, but we will still do our best to support the child as much as possible. Our hope is that a child/family is sponsored for the duration of the programme (around three years), but rest assured we will contact you as soon as we receive news of a change in circumstances.
