AOY does not provide sponsorship for attendees. We strongly recommend that you approach your local church or church leaders to enquire about sponsorship. However, if you are unable to get any support, you can contact us to ask for financial assistance as we do send out fundraising letters to fundraise for those who wish to attend but cannot afford to. We never want money to be the reason someone cannot be enriched by God's Word.
