Sponsorship is an incredibly powerful way to help one poor child break the bonds of poverty. It connects you with an individual child who desperately needs your help, and lets you provide life-changing benefits to that child for a low monthly contribution. Sponsorship is your chance to build a lifelong friendship with an impoverished child, one that will alter the course of his or her life.
Your sponsorship ensures your sponsored child receives support through every phase of his or her young life. It provides health and dental care, as well as medicine and nutritional support to help your child stay healthy. Your sponsored child will also receive basic necessities like sturdy shoes and clothing, school uniforms, tuition or supplies so that poverty doesn’t stand in the way of their education. When your sponsored child reaches age 12, he or she will have access to a world-class Youth Program full of activities designed to transform poor children into confident and responsible young adults prepared for success.
As a sponsor, you’ll be amazed by how much can be accomplished with so little. Your small monthly contribution guarantees your sponsored child receives benefits and support that can dramatically change his or her life. We make that possible by maximizing efficiency and keeping administrative costs low so that 83% of our total expenses go directly to the benefits and programs that help support sponsored children and their families.
CI's youth programs help young people avoid gangs and violence and prepare for a self-sufficient future.

Sponsorship has improved millions of lives and helped thousands of children escape poverty’s grasp…but none of it would’ve been possible without supporters like you. Here are just a few of the things we accomplish together:
Operate over 80 community centers in 11 countries, offering poor children safe, positive places to learn and grow
Provide hundreds of thousands of free medical and dental exams to impoverished children
Distribute food and relief supplies to victims of man-made and natural disasters in the communities we serve
Help thousands of kids overcome obstacles to their education
Grant hundreds of HOPE scholarships each year so qualified youth can further their education.

One thing that makes CI different is the fact that we encourage our sponsors to visit their sponsored children. On average, we facilitate over 800 sponsor visits every year!
