Villages

The backbone of the Child Sponsorship ministry at Lake Pointe is the work being done in each remote village. From this page, you can view the villages in which we work and learn more about each village. While each village is unique in its own way, each village shares one common theme-hope. This hope comes from our generous sponsors who invest in children and their families through their $30/month sponsorship.
