Children with the "Most Needy" flag are facing the least stable living circumstances and fewest material comforts.

"Sponsorship is something that melts my soul. You are never the same again, especially if you get to meet your child and see the results … It is an indescribable feeling to know — and, in my case, actually hear from a mother — how what I’ve done has changed their lives."
 Marily R., CI sponsor since 1993

What is child sponsorship?

Child sponsorship connects two people — a sponsor with a generous heart and a child living in poverty.

From toddlerhood to young adulthood, our child sponsorship program equips kids with crucial life and job skills to break the cycle of poverty. For good.

Your $36 monthly gift supports

1. A safe place, like 70+ community centers around the world
2. A caring team of local staff and volunteers
3. A path out of poverty through life-changing programs and services

More about child sponsorship:

“Through Children International and through that personal interaction and the personal connection that you get through letters and pictures, it makes it more than just giving money…it's real.”

- Lina D., CI sponsor since 2014
