Information for eFoster Parents
eFoster Parents are role models and mentors. They are individuals, couples, and families that sincerely want to make a difference in the present and future lives of children most in need. eFoster Parents are matched with or can choose a specific child at one of eGlobal Family's partner orphanages to become their eFoster Child (view unmatched eFoster Children). Once matched, the eFoster Parent and Child exchange emails and start to build a relationship. The importance of one institutionalized child getting loving emails of encouragement from one caring adult or family is enormous.
A dollar a day ($360/year) and at least one email a month is all it takes to become an eFoster Parent. The financial support will help provide food and water, medical supplies, clothing, hygiene items, school fees, etc. The emotional support that results from the email-nurturing will help unlock your child's abilities and help build their self-confidence. Ultimately, we anticipate with your positive influence, our children becoming valuable and productive young adults of good character.
eGlobal Family is committed to helping develop and nurture these virtual parent-child relationships. Read our eFoster Parent Guidelines for more information on what it means to be an eFoster Parent. Common questions are addressed in our eFoster Parent FAQ, but always feel free to contact us directly with any questions, comments, or concerns.
