Duration is set per month, with a minimum of 3 months and a maximum of 1 year. In the end of the commitment, the Sponsor is asked if he/she wishes to renew.

When you select “I want to sponsor” button, you will be re-directed to the Sponsorship Form page and be asked to follow the necessary steps. It allows you to pay through Direct Debit (card) or PayPal. Please fill the form as complete as possible. If you feel this is all too complicated, don’t worry, we are here to help you!

Lisbon Project will email you with a Welcome pack and a Thank You card with the beneficiary’s information. Lisbon Project will send quarterly reports including criteria of improvement and involvement, financial management and specific investments done.

We strongly suggest you to fulfil the commitment you’ve set, as a way to honor ours and specially the beneficiaries expectations when they get sponsored. But we do understand if personal circumstances arise and so we ask you to give notice at least one month in advance.

We will be very glad if you want to take a step further and establish a personal relationship with the beneficiary sponsored. For the protection of both interested, the meetings will be made at the Lisbon Project office or with one of our representatives.

If you wish to connect with your beneficiary via mail, we can arrange that after the first personal meeting with them at the Lisbon Project and upon the beneficiary agreement.

Our priority is to always respect the privacy of our beneficiaries. We are honoured to have them opened their lives to us and we do have to protect them when we expose them on our website or in social media. In some cases you’ll find their names changed or their front faces covered, as they asked us so for personal reasons.

If you don’t want to commit to the sponsorship program but you feel you want to contribute in a different way, you are very welcome to visit our  website’s Donate section at lisbonproject.org/donate and contribute according to what we need.
