Padrino Child Sponsorships

Sponsoring a child is the most sure way to guarantee that you change the life of a child in high risk, forever.


Becoming a child's sponsor means becoming a child's stable, consistent source of hope and opportunity.

All children sponsored in Coprodeli's Padrino Child Sponsorship Program are in Coprodeli's Children in High Risk Program. They are the children who are in the most need, the children that have the cards of life stacked against them. Most children come from very rough home lives, and often suffer domestic, sexual, or psychological abuse; unstable living situations; and such poor economic conditions that they are often forced to work or unable to eat.


Given the chance, however, the majority of these children excel in improving their academic status and take part in personal development and community activities.  They just need someone to take that chance on them.

Please read on to learn more about the incredible opportunity to sponsor a child with Coprodeli and change a life.

What can I expect as a sponsor?

As a Padrino, you are assured that there is a real connection between you and the child you support. The child you sponsor will know your name and benefit directly from your sponsorship.

Padrinos will benefit from video and photo updates of their child 2-3 times per year, the opportunity to write their child as often as they please, the opportunity to send small care packages to their child, and the opportunity to meet their child on a Coprodeli Volunteer Trip.

How do payments work?

Cost: The cost of the Padrino Child Sponsorship Program is $400 annually, or just over $1 a day.

Tax-deductable? Yes. All payments made for the sponsorships will go through Coprodeli USA, a registered 501(c)3, and therefore all payments are tax-deductable. 


Payments: Coprodeli USA has a Recurring Payment Program that we ask all new Padrino Sponsors to enroll in. 


Why? As a Sponsor for a Child in High Risk, one of the greatest things you provide for your child is stability and dependability – which is otherwise absent in their home lives. The Recurring Payment Program ensures that your child will receive the support he or she needs consistently.


Additionally, the Recurring Payment Program makes contributions significantly more hassle-free for both Padrinos and Coprodeli USA. Padrinos will benefit from greater convenience, less time spent on the phone and email, lighter consciences, and a more regularized payment timetable. Coprodeli USA recently reorganized by streamlining and consolidating its personnel so that whatever funds generated go directly to Coprodeli programs in Peru with no overhead administration fees. Given the reorganization, our Padrino Child Sponsorship program is coordinated by volunteers. The Recurring Payment Program makes managing the contribution of our Padrinos' payments substantially more effective. 


The Recurring Payment schedules an automatic contribution of either $100.00 quarterly or $400.00 annually (whichever you select) from your credit or debit card. Once enrolled in the Recurring Payment Program, you will receive an email receipt every time your card has been charged. Should you wish to do so, you will be able to change or cancel your Padrino Sponsorship at any time simply by writing to and/or
