Cher sponsor !

Nous vous remercions de votre gentillesse et de votre intérêt pour « l’adoption » d’une personne âgée. Le parrainage est une merveilleuse façon d’éprouver la joie d’aider une personne dans le besoin et fera une différence durable dans la vie de ceux qui ont besoin de votre soutien et de votre attention.

ÉCHANGE DE LETTRES

En échangeant des lettres avec votre bénéficiaire, vous pouvez établir une relation merveilleuse qui sera enrichissante pour vous deux. Grâce aux lettres, vous apprendrez à connaître leur vie et leur pays. En retour, les personnes âgées aiment savoir qui vous êtes. Vous pouvez même inclure des photos de vous. Malheureusement, nous ne pouvons pas garantir une réponse à chaque lettre, car l’état de santé de certaines de nos babouchkas ne leur permet pas de le faire.
Le moyen le plus rapide et le plus simple d’écrire à votre bénéficiaire est d’envoyer un courriel à info@babushkaadoption.org. Vous pouvez également envoyer une lettre par la poste. Veuillez indiquer votre numéro de parrain dans toute correspondance. Notre personnel traduira et distribuera vos lettres pour vous.

ENVOI DE CADEAUX

Vous pouvez également envoyer des cadeaux pour des occasions spéciales, pour répondre à des besoins spécifiques ou simplement comme un acte d’amour. Si vous souhaitez envoyer des dons monétaires supplémentaires, veuillez nous informer par e-mail du montant et transférer l’argent sur l’un de nos comptes bancaires. Indiquez que votre don est un don supplémentaire afin que nous l’appliquions correctement et n’oubliez pas de mentionner votre numéro de parrainage personnel. Votre don en argent sera remis à votre bénéficiaire lors de la distribution régulière d’argent.
Les colis peuvent être envoyés à notre bureau. Nous remettrons votre cadeau à votre bénéficiaire et vous enverrons une photo de sa réception. Veuillez indiquer votre numéro de parrain sur le colis. Nous vous demandons de ne pas envoyer de produits fragiles car ils pourraient se briser. Nous vous suggérons d’envoyer quelque chose de général, comme des vêtements, des écharpes, des chaussettes ou des gants, qui seraient très appréciés dans nos hivers glacials.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, you can choose whether you would like to adopt a grandmother or grandfather. Our sponsor coordinator will send you a profile from our database. If for some reason the chosen profile is not suitable, please let us know and we will do our best to find a suitable alternative.
Yes, we would welcome your generous support.
Adopting a babushka or dedushka in Kyrgyzstan for one year costs €180. From this yearly amount, €144 goes directly to your beneficiary, at two-monthly intervals, and €36 goes towards the running costs of BA, including; staff costs, communication expenses (internet, post correspondence), transportation costs for delivering cash transfers and all social projects, which BA is implementing.
If you contributed for one year, your adoption lasts one year from your first payment. Therefore, we kindly ask you to renew your adoption every year by Direct Debit or Standing Order with your bank. We ask you this because it is the best way to make our adoption programme more affordable and efficient and our sponsor coordinator will be most grateful. If you choose to renew your support annually we will send you a reminder that the year is coming to an end when your balance is €40. We kindly ask you to reply as soon as possible to inform us if you will continue your adoption. If we do not hear from by the time your balance is reduced to zero, we will have to cease the financial support to your beneficiary.
If your circumstances change and you can no longer adopt your babushka or dedushka, please inform us as soon as possible. If you decide to discontinue your adoption we will try to find a new sponsor for your beneficiary quickly so that we can continue their financial support without interruption.
Babushka Adoption Foundation is a Kyrgyz non-government organization (NGO), which was officially registered in the Ministry of Justice of the Kyrgyz Republic in 2000. The work of Babushka Adoption Foundation is overseen by a Supervisory Board consisting of professionals working in international agencies in the Kyrgyz Republic, local experts, and representatives of international and local organisations. Furthermore, non-staff members, auditors monitor the two-monthly money distribution process each year. At Babushka Adoption Foundation we adhere to the highest standards of financial accountability. We have established stringent accounting and financial reporting procedures to ensure that the funds are used for the purpose specified. Babushka Adoption Foundation conducts audits yearly to make sure funds are properly received, tracked and managed. Accountability is a commitment and a value that drives our whole organization. We are totally committed to earning and keeping your trust. In addition, staff members conduct financial and programme reviews. We work hard to monitor and evaluate our programme effectiveness and long-term impact — right down to the individual elderly person. Any time we see an irregularity, we take immediate and appropriate action. Our Executive Director and the board members are happy to respond to any queries/complaints/suggestions you may have.
To keep administrative costs to the minimum we have a small team of dedicated local staff, which does constrain our ability to reply immediately to all enquiries. Our single sponsor coordinator manages almost 520 sponsors and almost 1000 beneficiaries. We will, however, try to respond to all enquiries within one week. There is also a time lag between when you the sponsor sign onto the program and make payment to Babushka Adoption and when we receive confirmation of this. Babushka Adoption is investigating ways to dramatically reduce this time lag. We appreciate your patience in this matter.
We send our sponsors a financial report when there is €40 left on their sponsor account, along with a request for sponsorship renewal. Upon request we can also send you a financial report at any time. In addition, once a year Babushka Adoption Foundation sends to all sponsors a New Year Letter, which gives a full report of the achievements and activities of our organization. Our Annual, Programme and Audit Report are available on our website. Once a quarter we send newsletters to all our sponsors, informing of our Foundation’s activities.
Yes! Your words of encouragement will make a big difference to your beneficiary. We will be happy to translate and deliver your letters. In addition to letters, you can also send additional monetary gifts, presents or parcels, and even visit your babushka or dedushka.
Yes. We encourage sponsors to send additional monetary gifts, presents and parcels to their beneficiaries for special occasions, to address specific needs or simply as an act of love. These gifts are another effective way for you to reinforce your care and commitment to your beneficiary. We will give your present to your beneficiary and send you a photo of her or him receiving your present.
No, unfortunately we cannot accept checks. However, if your Post office in your country allows you to transfer money through them to our bank accounts, we would gladly help you with information details.
        Babushka Adoption Foundation has four bank accounts, in Kyrgyzstan, Switzerland, Germany, and the Netherlands. You can select whichever bank is most convenient for you.

Unfortunately all banks charge some amount of money for transfers. Babushka Adoption Foundation is not able to cover the bank transfer charges and cannot offer any other bank accounts for the transfer. We ask for your understanding and have also found most banks are sympathetic to waiving the charges if you tell them the transaction is for charity purposes.
By transferring the whole amount at once you will save the cost of bank transfer charges. Of course, if this is not convenient for you, you may transfer your money monthly or quarterly and minimise our administrative costs.
Our sponsor coordinator will confirm receipt of your payment as soon as possible. Please note that our Swiss bank sends statements that detail transactions up to the 15th of the previous month. Therefore, if, for example, you transfer money to our Swiss account on September 3, we will only be able to confirm receipt of your payment after October 15. We kindly ask you for your understanding.
