Sponsor a child in need

help children with the TOUGHEST LIVING CONDITIONS

Children living in poverty face unique challenges that our programs are designed to overcome. 

While all of our children are very needy to be eligible for sponsorship, those with a ‘most needy’ red flag are facing the least stable living circumstances. The criteria to determine the ‘most needy’ flag are related to basic necessities, and include availability of electricity, clean water, sanitary conditions, sleeping accommodations and presence of parents. 

Your monthly gift of $36 gives your child life-changing benefits and proven programs, including access to a safe space, a supportive team and a proven path to help them envision - and build - a future free from poverty.  As a sponsor, you’ll see your impact firsthand through letters and photos.

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
