You can make a dramatic difference in a child's life for $31 a month.

Every weekday Blessman International’s Del Cramer Child Development Center provides physical, spiritual, emotional, cognitive, and social development to children in Limpopo, South Africa. These children face some of the most challenging circumstances, such as food insecurity, broken homes, medical issues, and more. Del Cramer provides a glimpse of hope for these children, and so can you.

Our program, One Child at a Time, allows you to have an opportunity to change a child’s life as a sponsor. For $31 a month or $372 a year, you will provide:

Del Cramer provides over 1,000 meals every week. These meals comprise of Meals from the Heartland rice, vegetables, game meat, and more.

Del Cramer is fully staffed by social workers and educators from the community. Coming to Del Cramer after school keeps them from participating in other unhealthy habits.

  • Children receive supplemental educational assistance through our IDEAL program (Individual Digital Educational Assistance for Learners).
  • Children have the opportunity to join our Sports 4 Christ program that teaches them how to be good teammates, how to honor God through sports, and helps them develop physically. In 2023, we will partner with Fellowship of Christian Athletes to host US coaches and sports teams to mentor our young athletes.

Del Cramer provides opportunities to help children learn what it means to be a friend, make friends, and develop the skills needed to cultivate deep friendships.

We share lessons about God weekly through an age-appropriate curriculum based on God’s Word.


  • As a sponsor, you’ll receive updates about your sponsored child throughout the year. You and your sponsored child will form a bond as you exchange information about your live; your likes, hobbies, interests, families, and more. You will celebrate then in their milestones and become one of their biggest supporters. You could even get the chance to meet them face-to-face on one of our mission trips to South Africa.
  • This child sponsorship program is organized on an online platform, Reach, where sponsorship payments can be made, sponsor child information can be tracked, and personal letters can be exchanged between you and your sponsored child. *
