Growing up in poverty, children face tough challenges: hunger and malnutrition, limited access to education and medical services, social discrimination and isolation. But with support 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.
Children in poverty are more likely to be exposed to the stress of violence, gangs and drugs. This can negatively affect brain development and long-term well-being. Your support during this vulnerable time helps children and youth set their own goals to build a life free from poverty.
When you sponsor a child, you create a powerful multiplier effect. You help them see beyond the daily struggles of life in poverty. Your support releases them from a cycle of short-term decisions and helps them gain the ability to begin contributing to their own families and communities.
Sponsorship encompasses key programs specifically designed to address children’s toughest issues in their fight against poverty. Getting and staying healthy, staying in school, finding a stable job. You can help children overcome challenges they’d otherwise face for a lifetime. You can help set them free.
Your monthly gift of $36 ensures that kids living in poverty have access to life-changing benefits like medical care, educational support, life skills and job-training before they graduate.
