FAQs about Sponsorship

Sponsorship through Children International

Child sponsorship with Children International begins by connecting two people: a caring sponsor and a child struggling in poverty. From early childhood to young adulthood, our child development program equips young people with crucial life skills and important job skills so they can break the cycle of generational poverty.

Your sponsorship gives your child a broad range of tools and opportunities to escape the hardships of generational poverty.

Through sponsorship, children gain access to our community centers, where they:

  • Find respite from dangers like gang violence and drugs.
  • Can focus on learning, playing and simply being a child.
  • Meet caring, local staff who provide life‑changing programs and mentorship.

Impoverished children who become sponsored benefit from:

  • Access to medical and dental care
  • Tutoring assistance
  • Libraries and computer labs
  • Life- and job-skills training
  • The confidence and security of knowing someone cares for their well‑being.
