    Can I support a child older than 18?

    In principle, sponsoring ends as soon as children reach the age of 18. In case a child continues its studies afterwards, there is a possibility to extend sponsoring. If a child starts to do something else(e.g military service) the advice is given to stop sponsoring followed by a request to sponsor another child. In grave situations the advice may be given to continue sponsoring the child even beyond the age of 18. The sponsor’s choice is respected as much as possible.
