Becoming a ‘Godparent’ to one of the children is a wonderful way to become involved with Kitezh and Orion Children’s Communities, which can lead to a lifelong friendship with the child.
Most of the fostered children have had very difficult lives before coming to Kitezh and Orion. Your interest will make them aware of the greater world and greater possibilities than they had imagined. It also helps to give them a sense of being validated as ‘real people’. While they often find it difficult to write to you, they value your communications, your letters, from someone outside Kitezh-Orion. For children who have struggled to be noticed, your letters help them to feel significant. The heart of Kitezh-Orion is to build fostered children’s belief in themselves.
Building a relationship is important. Godparents are encouraged to write letters and emails to their godchild and to send cards for birthdays and Christmas. Your donation contributes to a Children’s Fund that gives each child a birthday and New Year present from you, as well as paying for special trips and holidays. The children will write at least one letter per year to their ‘Godparent’ and in addition we will send a progress update and recent photo.
