Abstract

This chapter discusses a range of historic criticisms of Child sponsorship (CS) as they relate to Individual, institutional Child Sponsorship (IICS) or IFCS (Individual and Family Child Sponsorship (IFCS). Recognizing the overwhelmingly negative portrayal of historic CS, many staff in various CS International Non-government Organisations (INGOs) who have, since the 1920s, facilitated programmatic improvements. It is noteworthy that programs staff in leading CS INGOs have been instrumental in moving CS interventions from orphan care, to family helper programs and beyond to pooled funding for service provision, holistic child development, community development activities and advocacy. To imply that the push for change came exclusively from outside CS INGOs would be a grave injustice and it may be fairer to say that most CS INGOs have improved and improved rather than come short again and again.
