For a child living in poverty today

You can help end poverty for good by sponsoring a child

Growing up in poverty, children face tough challenges: hunger and malnutrition, limited access to education and medical services, social discrimination and isolation. But with charity from people like you, we can help children get the health care, education, life skills, job-readiness training and confidence they need to create lasting change in their lives and communities. Together, we can end poverty for good.

What we focus on

Lasting impact

Children growing up in poverty are exposed to many additional stressors and negative influences. Your support during this vulnerable time helps children for the first two critical decades of their lives.


Good that grows

Sponsoring a child provides them with the opportunity to see beyond their daily struggles – and helps them gain the skills they need to positively contribute to their families and communities.
