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, 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 child sponsorship work?
