Getting Started

OSP works with Canada Revenue Agency registered charities to sponsor orphans worldwide. We promote our cause and collect donations through various avenues including but not limited to, special events and outreach, booths, social media, and word of mouth.

More than 75% of our funds come from individual donors sponsoring particular orphans. This helps us make sure that every orphan is supported on a recurring basis. To cater to donors of diverse financial backgrounds, OSP allows for annual, semiannual, quarterly and monthly sponsorships.

The Sponsorship Process

The Sponsorship ProcessHow It Works:

  1. Throughout the year, OSP raises funds through fundraisers and Donors
  2. In December, OSP sends donations to the charities for all the OSP sponsored orphans
  3. The charities transfer the money to the “field officers” and subsequently to the orphan’s mother (if alive), guardian or the orphanage
  4. The eligibility of the orphan for sponsorship is determined by the orphan’s family’s income/assets etc.
  5. Every year, the registered charity evaluates and sends a progress report for each sponsored orphan to OSP . Donors can keep track of the child’s progress through the progress reports, and exchange of gifts and letters
  6. OSP follows the Islamic definition of an orphan, which is a child without a father or both parents, and continues sponsorship until the age of 18.
