In times of crisis, children in poverty are especially vulnerable and face uncertain futures. Your monthly gift of $36 will give your sponsored child access to life-changing benefits, like medical care, educational support, life skills and job training before graduation.
Right now, there are thousands of boys waiting for a sponsor. And in countries like India and The Philippines, young boys are especially in need of a sponsor. With child labor problems prevalent in both countries, young boys often drop out of school and find jobs to help their families survive.
