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

“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
