FAQ

Mentioned answers generally apply for Children´s Donation project®, further information about individual countries can be found in the menu of supported countries. 

We also recommend to thoroughly read sections About project and For donors to get a complete overview.

There are two conditions. A child has to come from a low-income family (around 2 € per day). The child has to be educated (schools, training courses and craft classes) or begin with their education after being integrated into the project.
Slovak Catholic Charity does not offer the choice of a child based on a photo on the internet. Supported children come from low-income families and are chosen directly by the local communities. These workers know well the social and financial situation of the children. The only criteria, which SKCH can meet are: boy/girl, approximate age (child older or younger than 14 years old).

It is also possible to donate a higher sum. If a donor decides to do so, the difference between these payments will be used for the good of all the other children. It is not possible to favour some children over others.

It is not necessary to support a specific child. It is also possible to donate to the needs of all children and centres for the good of the whole community in particular countries. Frequency and the number of donations depend on your personal decision. However, if You want to receive news from the centre, it is necessary to donate at least once a year. The given amount is entirely up to the donor.  
Yes, you can support more than one child/centre from one or more countries. Please, send a separate application for each chosen country.
There is no time commitment when sending the application and taking part in the Children´s Donation project®. A donor can withdraw from the project anytime. If You do so, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can find the child a new donor.
Donations from donors are sent regularly on accounts of our partners. Each of them sends us feedback message regarding the acceptance of the payment as well as the report about the usage of donated money. These partners and workers secure the further payment for school items, fees, school uniforms, bags, books, commuting to school, boarding school fees, summer camps, school trips, healthcare and food, and sometimes Christmas presents on behalf of the donors.
Every gift You send us is divided as follows: 81% for a child, 17% for the administration of the project and 2% for development fund which is used for all children in the countries of the project and to further develop the project.
You can pay by bank transfer.

Account nubers for the supported countries can be found here:

When paying by standing order, depositing cash on a bank account or internet banking, use your personal donor number as the variable symbol. This number is generated by our database of donors. Without this number, it is not possible to correctly identify your payments.
Connecting multiple donors for one child is possible only if the donors (friends, family, school, and so on) donate together the whole required sum under one name, which had been earlier stated in their application.
