Change the
Life of a Child

Every child deserves a strong start – the best chance for a successful future. But too many children right here in the U.S. and around the world aren’t getting the opportunity to reach their full potential. You can help change that. If you sponsor a child, then you’ll give them the gift of a brighter future.

Watch Change Happen.

Transform the Life
of a Child in Need

Sponsorship gives children the gift of brighter futures – one child at a time. Save the Children’s dedicated staff achieves lasting impact for children through partnerships and provide tools that empower entire communities to better support their children’s health, education, protection and growth – breaking the cycle of poverty for generations to come.

When you sponsor a child, you achieve a special kind of giving that creates a relationship between you and the community where Save the Children’s caring professionals are helping to change the future. It provides more than the satisfaction that comes with aid for improving the education and well-being of children; it delivers a special opportunity to witness young lives lifted over time. When you sponsor a child, two lives are changed forever: yours and the life of your sponsored child. If a child knows they have someone on their side, then they can be inspired to dream big!
