Global Tamil Forum has initiated the SPONSOR A FAMILY OR CHILD project that calls for the relief assistance of orphaned children and destitute IDP families immediately following their release from camps. The first phase of this initiative will support a limited number of children and families.
Global Tamil Forum has enabled this online payment facility mainly for persons who do not have enough information on how to send the funds directly to the various orphanages.
The role of the sponsor is to provide financial assistance to enable the child or family to receive food, clothing, medicine and education. The sponsor is not an adoptive parent, neither has claim over the child, but will sponsor purely on a humanitarian basis.
It is recommended that a sponsor will continue to support the child or family until they are self-sufficient or for at least 12 months, however, there is no compulsion to do so. Payments can be made in full or monthly in 12 installments. For more information please refer to the pdf file (Information pack) below. Receipts issued by NGOs on the ground and related information will be sent to the sponsor by the Global Tamil Forum.
This project is being conducted through a local NGO in the UK. Donations can be tax deductable. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to participate and help make a difference in the life of a child.
Funds can be trasferred through member organisations or directly through Global Tamil Forum.
Payments can be made through GTF Website. Please click Sponsorship Programs and Donations(on the right hand side) and select Sponsorship programs. Minimal Paypal processing fees will be included (please see note below).
Receipts will be issued by NGOs in Sri Lanka and sent to the sponsor's mailing address. Please participate and help make a difference in the life of a child. Please visit the website regularly for more updates.

This project is managed by a dedicated team of volunteers and there are no administration fees from Global Tamil Forum. For online transactions, Paypal charges 3.9% + 30p for each transaction and that has been taken into account for payments.
