Sponsorship Program





The Sponsorship program has always been an important OS program that brings assistance directly to families and elders and also promotes inter-cultural understanding and friendship. Both families and sponsors tell us frequently how much it means to them. Both seem to gain equal benefits from the program. There are about 800 sponsors in the program at this time and about 1000 children and elders on the waiting list hoping for a sponsor. The children and elders on the program have urgent needs for warm clothing, blankets, shoes, food and other basic needs.

Children's FutureThis painting is entitled "Our Children Hold the Future in their Hands". Mixed media on Canvas. 45.7 cm x 50.8 cm. unframed, gallery-wrapped, finished edges.

For every $10.00 you donate to One Spirit Youth Programs, you will receive an entry to the drawing for this extraordinary art piece.


Betty Tuininga"I am willing to donate the painting benefit One Spirit's YOUTH program. This is something that is near and dear to my heart."

"The painting is very textural as it is a combination of oils mixed with cold waxed and applied with a palette knife. It gives it a raw visceral appeal. My impetus for painting this was my frustration with the state of world peace and the state of poverty and life within our own country. I realized that I would never see those changes in my lifetime. My young grandsons (the models for this painting) have so much ahead of them. I realized that they, along with the rest of their generation, are the hope of the world. It is so much to hand off to them... and for each generation that follows. I am also painfully aware that for some, the effort is acutely more difficult!"
~Betty Tuininga, Artist
