How Sponsoring a Child Makes a Difference
You can create a lasting, personal bond and change a child's life by helping provide health care, education and much more — all for less than $1 a day. Somewhere out there, a little girl or boy is waiting for you to become their sponsor.
Sponsoring a child helps provide girls and boys with a healthy and successful start to their life — early childhood development, education, school health. Your generosity helps your sponsored child and lifts entire communities. As a child sponsorship organization, our programs reach parents, caregivers and community members.
Together we help save children's lives, protect them from harm and provide them with hope for the future. When you sponsor a child, you're not helping a needy child - you're sponsoring children who need your help to reach their full potential for a brighter future.
You can sponsor a child in the U.S., sponsor a child in Africa, like Lonaba (pictured above) or any of the dozens of countries where we work.

Sponsorship provides children the chance at a healthy start and the opportunity to learn to grow into productive, engaged citizens.
