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 67+ 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

How Child Sponsorship Works

What does my child receive?
  • Access to life-changing benefits through our innovative community centers, such as medical and dental care, empowerment initiatives and education programs focused on giving children the support and tools they need to be healthy, stay in school, graduate and create a lasting change in their community. (Our U.S. children are served through the University of Arkansas in Little Rock.)

  • Support from our dedicated staff and volunteers who are embedded in the community and committed to helping your child succeed. 

  • A personal connection with someone who cares (you!) and the invaluable knowledge that they are special and loved.

  • A chance for a better life free from poverty.

What can I expect as a sponsor?
  • A quick-start guide to child sponsorship along with more info about your child including a photo.

  • Photos and updates about your child on a regular basis.

  • Letters from your child, many of which contain hand-drawn pictures.

  • Access to MyCI, your online account, where you can view photos and learn more about your child, read and write letters, manage your giving, and connect with other sponsors. 

  • See your impact in action through updates and monthly emails. And the option to visit your child and tour our life-changing community centers.

  • A unique and rewarding opportunity to make a difference. 

Sponsorship continues to provide life-changing help to your child

Your support is especially critical during this time, as families around the world are having their lives upended by the lasting effects of the coronavirus. However, your sponsorship experience will begin a little differently than it normally would.
