Our Project I Am Sponsorship Program is unique in that it allows YOU to decide how much you would like to commit to give every month. It costs us $150 per month to provide all the needs for each child. We know it is difficult for most families to afford such a high amount and we are all on different incomes. If there is a child you would like to help sponsor for an amount that is comfortable for your family’s budget, it will help go towards meeting that child’s financial need.
Whether your monthly gift of $5 or $150… that child will be directly benefited from your gift! Your monthly commitment will help to provide a home, nutritious food, medical care, and education. Would you consider sponsoring one of our precious children today?

Click here to sponsor Ajay
Hi, my name is Ajay! My family has lived on the streets my entire life. A team from Project I Am International started visiting us on the side of the road in 2015. I used to look out for the grey car because whenever they came, they would bring us food or clothes. My mom would never let us go with them though. She didn’t trust them quite yet.
In 2016, my dad was murdered so my mom finally agreed to let my four siblings and I come stay in a PIAI Rescue Home, but she wasn’t willing to come with us. I am now studying hard at school and even worked with a tutor to catch up to my grade level. I am hoping to be a police officer when I grow up so I can protect other kids living on the streets because most police are very mean to us.

Hi, my name is Ashok! I am the youngest of my five siblings and I am very mischievous. My parents neglected me and so mostly my older sister and brother took care of me. When Project I Am came to work with my family, my mom was quick to allow me to go because she did not want to continue having the responsibility to watch me.
Even though I really enjoy living at the rescue home, I also cry a lot missing my mom even though I know she does not miss me. My older brother is in the same rescue home as me and he loves me a lot. I like going to school and I am building towers with blocks in the afternoon. I hope one day I can become a builder.

Hi, my name is Bunny! When I was three, my mother abandoned my other brother Derek, my father, and me. When my father remarried, my stepmom was abusive to me and my dad did nothing to stop it. My brother and I fled and tried to make it on our own on the streets when Project I Am found us.
I like going to school and I score very high on my exams. I love playing cricket and soccer after school. I hope that living in a safe environment with PIAI will give me the opportunity to be a sports coach when I grow up.
