Bushikori's main focus is the need of orphans and widows living in poverty. The primary way they address this issue is through child sponsorship.
Bushikori sponsorship is largely co-ordinated through the Australian Support Committee. While the majority of our sponsors come from the Geelong region, Bushikori also has sponsors from as far away as England, Sweden and United States of America.
Unlike a lot of organisations we are not set up for sponsoring online. One of our greatest strengths is the relationship our Child Sponsorship Coordinator has with our sponsors through spending time with them to select a child and their regular updates and contact.
Sponsoring is a very personal way to support deprived children. Through the child you sponsor, you can learn about a culture very different to your own and gain an insight into the lives of children growing up in developing countries. As a sponsor, you will see the difference you are helping to make. If you wish, you can sponsor more than one child.
The Australian Support Committee is a group of volunteers that meet regularly and partner with BCC through providing prayer support, organising child sponsorship in Australia and administering donated funds to help resource BCC.
