What Is A Sponsorship Ambassador?

AGCI Ambassadors are passionate sponsors who are committed to advocating for the vulnerable children within AGCI’s sponsorship programs. Driven to broaden their impact of sponsorship, ambassadors invite friends, families and communities to learn more about the needs of orphaned and vulnerable children across the globe. By empowering others to become sponsors, ambassadors help to ensure that children around the world can remain within their family’s loving care, continue their education, and ultimately break the cycle of poverty. Below are the 5 ways Sponsorship Ambassadors typically get involved.

SPONSORSHIP
Become A Sponsor!

The first step to becoming an ambassador is sponsoring a child!

When you sponsor a child’s education, you aren’t just enabling them to attend school—you’re also providing essential support so they can remain within a family! Change a child’s life forever through sponsorship! For just $40 a month, you can sponsor a child’s education or care and ensure they have the tools they need to thrive. 

As a sponsor, you’ll receive…

  • The ability to correspond with your sponsored child.
  • An update and photos of your sponsored child twice a year.
  • A special video greeting from your sponsored child each year.
  • The option to send a gift or personal greeting to your sponsored child through our sponsorship store.
  • The joy of knowing you are changing a child’s life forever!
Engage
Utilize Your Social Network

Join the Sponsorship Ambassador Facebook group and spread the word about the orphan crisis and show your friends how they can help via Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. By inviting your friends and family to participate in the work God has called us to, we are able to share our mission and all do our part to care for the world’s orphans!  

“I believe that if everybody does a little something, the world could be a lot better! I asked for sponsorship materials thinking that if I could get a few clients to sponsor, this could spread. So far 4 or 5 of my clients have become sponsors! The little smiling faces speak for themselves but the display gives me an easy opportunity to share about the ministry and the kids I met and saw with my own eyes and heart!” —Angie, AGCI Ambassador

EVENTS
Host an Advocacy Event

Are you passionate about helping children reach their full potential and want to share that vision with others? Host a Sponsorship Event! Events can be as casual as:

  • A ‘Hosting an Event’ Guide and Packet.
  • 20% Discount off of AGCI Merch on our website.
  • A full heart after sharing the impact of sponsorship with your community!
CHURCH
Connect Your Church

You can help your church form a relationship with AGCI through prayer and partnership to impact children around the world!

Your church can change lives with…

  • Sponsorship: Come together to sponsor a child or entire community
  • Advocacy: Pray and advocate for specific children by sharing their stories with your congregation
  • Partnership: Invite an AGCI team member to visit your congregation

“As a newer church, we didn’t have an official ‘Missions Department’, and felt like we weren’t able to make a significant difference in the lives of orphans around the world. But we began partnering with AGCI and have gotten a front row seat to witness the life-changing impact that our generosity, prayers, and service can make in these precious orphans’ lives. We are so grateful to AGCI for making it so easy to partner with them and for the life-changing work that they are doing all around the world.”—Pastor Jesse Butterworth, Rain City Church

ADVOCACY TRIPS
Join a Vision Trip

AGCI offers Vision Trips to Ambassadors who are committed to furthering the mission and want to see the work firsthand. Led by an AGCI staff member, this life-changing experience of seeing the work with your own eyes is the first step in joining the movement to intervene for orphans!

“From the moment I heard about the Vision trip to Colombia with AGCI, I knew that God had put this opportunity in my path and on my heart. I knew it would be difficult for me to see the impact of human trafficking and the orphan crisis on these precious, little children – and it was. However, the Vision trip allowed me to understand the ‘why’ behind the big picture of the orphan crisis in Bogota so I could authentically begin to take steps to help make a difference. I’m so grateful for this opportunity, I’m forever changed.”  —Alyssa DePompa, N2 Publishing

Frequently Asked Questions

The AGCI Ambassador Facebook group is a place where AGCI sponsors can come together to advocate for vulnerable children worldwide. Through the Facebook group, you’ll be able to share your unique sponsorship experience, get the “behind the scenes” updates on sponsorship, and connect with AGCI staff in a meaningful way!

Each week, we’ll focus on one child that we want to find a sponsor for. We encourage our ambassadors to help by sharing this child’s story on their social media accounts. With hundreds of children in our sponsorship programs, we’re in need of a lot of sponsors! Sponsorship Ambassadors can also play a huge part in finding sponsors for children by hosting events at their church, with a small group of friends, or with family. Hosting events is not required, but highly encouraged!

All God’s Children International is a non-profit organization and we are unable to give monetary compensation for participation on the Ambassador Team. We do, however, offer free or discounted merchandise throughout the year and travel opportunities!

We believe there is incredible value in seeing AGCI’s work firsthand. We will reach out to you as travel opportunities to AGCI’s sponsorship countries become available!

The Ambassador Program has multiple opportunities for engagement and your time commitment can vary based on your schedule and desire to advocate! Sharing social media posts can take a few minutes per week, while an event might take a few days to plan

We believe that the best advocates for sponsorship are people who have experienced the program themselves. Therefore, we do require that each of our ambassadors is a sponsor.

We’re happy to hear that you’d like to host a sponsorship event in collaboration with AGCI. Most all of the resources you’ll need are available on the AGCI Ambassador Facebook Group page. For the materials, you’ll need and to sign up to host an event click here!

PROVIDE
Aweru Tesfaye is from the northern region in Ethiopia of Tigray, and entered the Ethiopia Education Sponsorship program in August of 2009 when she was 12 years old. Sadly, both of her parents had passed away from illness, and she and her brother were being raised by their elderly grandmother. Their only income came from agriculture, making it extremely difficult for their vulnerable family to live out of poverty. Upon entering the program, Aweru enjoyed writing and reading, but her school performance was only rated as average as the resources provided to her were scarce. As a full orphan, Aweru was at risk of having to drop out of school to work and help support her family, eliminating her chance at an education and the opportunity to have hope for a better future if she didn’t receive sponsorship.
Aweru graduated from college this past winter from Daero College. After excelling in all of her courses, she received her degree in Accounting, and is now on her way to a career to provide for her future. Sponsorship allowed Aweru to remain in school, continue her education into college, and reach her full potential. The savings program made it possible for her to save for her future, and help her vulnerable family break the continuous cycle of poverty.
