"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 $32 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
