Why Choose to Sponsor a Child?

Child sponsorship is critical. In a world where more than a billion children live on less than $2 per day, child sponsorship, connecting one child with one sponsor, is the most strategic way to end child poverty. 

Through monthly financial support and letter writing, sponsors invest directly in the lives of children living in extreme poverty.

The children attend programs where they receive opportunities that would otherwise be out of their reach and that build on their school lessons.

Child sponsorship offers children and their families:

  • Educational opportunities to defeat illiteracy.
  • Life skills training and vocational programs to provide a brighter future.
  • Health care for basic medical needs.
  • Supplemental food assistance to prevent malnutrition.
  • Recreational activities to development self-confidence and social skills.
  • Added protection against crime, violence and danger.
