What is child sponsorship?

Child sponsorship is one of the most effective ways to create lasting change for a boy or girl in need.

When you sponsor a child for just $40 a month, you spark a powerful, personal relationship. Your monthly support provides essentials like healthy meals, clean water, medical care, and educational opportunities. Your child also gets to experience the love of God, and your prayers and letters are an encouragement to realize his or her potential.

How does your support reach your child?

Your sponsored child is enrolled in a local sponsorship program that is tailored to meet his or her individual needs. Your support goes directly to that program to help provide essentials like food, medical care educational opportunities and more.

There are four different types of sponsorship programs that your child may be enrolled in:

Children’s Homes

Family-Help Programs

Community Programs
