Bushikori's main focus is the needs of widows and the most vulnerable children living in poverty. The primary way they address this issue is through child sponsorship.
Bushikori sponsorship is largely co-ordinated through the Australian Support Committee. While the majority of our sponsors come from the Geelong region.
Unlike a lot of organisations we are not set up for sponsoring online. One of our greatest strengths is the relationship our Child Sponsorship Coordinator has with our sponsors through spending time with them to select a student and their regular updates and contact.
Sponsoring is a very personal way to support deprived children. Through the student you sponsor, you can learn about a culture very different to your own and gain an insight into the lives of children growing up in developing countries. As a sponsor, you will see the difference you are helping to make. If you wish, you can sponsor more than one student.
The Australian Support Committee is a group of volunteers that meet regularly and partner with BCC through providing prayer support, organising child sponsorship in Australia and administering donated funds to help resource BCC.
