Child Sponsorship | Love on the Map

Sponsors are heroes! Ask any child in the World Help Child Sponsorship Program and they will tell you with a beaming smile.

Without a doubt, a sponsor’s investment goes far beyond $35 a month. Sponsorship provides impoverished and disadvantaged children with the opportunities they never thought possible. It means nutrition, clean water, a quality education, medical attention, school supplies, and knowing that they are loved by someone who cares enough to invest in them. And above all, it gives children the chance to hear that God cherishes them.

Sponsorship is a physical, spiritual, social, mental, and eternal investment.

I feel very happy that I am able to go to school because of my sponsors. God bless my sponsors.” – William from Zimbabwe

Keti and Beatrice both grew up during Joseph Kony’s rule of terror in Northern Uganda. They spent their early childhoods away from their homes after the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) massacred, pillaged, and displaced thousands of people from their communities. Keti and Beatrice eventually found homes in Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camps, which were becoming increasingly dangerous for children—breeding sickness, disease, rape, and exploitation. Over the years, their generation tragically became known as the Forgotten Children.

But because of loving sponsors, Keti, Beatrice, and many more like them were rescued out of hopelessness.

“We brought them down to Kampala . . . for secondary school education. Today, Keti is a professional designer and Beatrice is a hotelier and specialist in cookery. Thank you World Help.” – Alex Mitala, Uganda partner

Without the support of compassionate individuals, Keti and Beatrice would have been raised within the unforgiving confines of a hopeless IDP camp, more than likely with little education and few opportunities to have a better life.

Without sponsors, thousands of children’s lives would look very differently.

I thank God for my sponsors. The fact that I receive books from my sponsors makes school easier. Now I can read more and write more. I believe I will do well in my schoolwork because of my sponsors. I am really grateful.” – Josephine from Zimbabwe

World Help celebrates the visionary individuals who choose to transform lives through child sponsorship. We can’t emphasize enough the life-changing power of this relationship. When a child understands that they are worth investing in—worth being seen, heard, and loved . . . everything begins to change.

“I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to all the sponsors through World Help. It is only because of the offerings you have given for the love of God that the lives of these many young people are molded. Thank you World Help! Thank you dear sponsors.” – James Lalrobul, India partner
