A sponsor is found for every individual child at Otjikondo School. Sponsors pay an annual donation to sponsor ‘their’ child. Christmas and birthday presents are also sent for the children, and letters sent back in thanks. From the money, the child’s basic needs are met (such as a pair of winter shoes when none come from home) and the rest is set aside to support the child with high school education once Otjikondo is left behind. Sponsorship of the children is co-ordinated by Joan Scott-Aiton in the UK (info@hazelsfootprints.org) and Monika Lehnen in Germany (monika.lehnen@web.de)
