Sponsor a child

Poverty may seem insurmountable. But it’s not greater than the power of one sponsor reaching out to one girl.

With better access to education, one-to-one support and individualized growth opportunities, that girl can develop the confidence, courage and life skills she needs to break free from poverty. Be the one who helps her do it - and transform your own life in the process.

“Knowing I have the ability to make life better for somebody else is a powerful thing. ‘I helped them do that. I actually made a difference.’ It’s an amazing feeling.”
