Making a Difference

Making a Difference


Each of our generous sponsors helps us ensure that a child in need has the best chance for success – with a healthy start, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. Together, we are transforming children's lives - and futures.

Meet some of the children whose lives have been forever changed through the power of Sponsorship… and a few of the many sponsors who are making change like this possible.

Meet the Children and Sponsors Forever Changed by Sponsorship


Child Stories


Meet Stayabou

With the help of our sponsors, our sponsorship programs ensure that parents in Niger know why sending their kids to school is essential for their futures.


Meet Haneen

"One of the most important rights that I am grateful for is the fact that I can express my opinion freely while demonstrating love and respect to those around me," says Haneen.


Meet Miracle

Thanks to compassionate sponsors like you, Miracle has been able to explore her love of learning, and was inspired to write a very special poem.


Meet Ricardo

The invitation to sponsorship’s Parenting Circle changed Yeni’s life and the life of her son, Ricardo, for the better.


Meet Bourama

Without sponsorship, it’s unlikely that Bourama would be where he is today – providing life-changing medical care to his local community.

Ma Irene

Kate and Max

Meet Kate and Max

Meet Delia

“If I had not participated in Save the Children's programs, I wouldn’t have a career. I barely would have finished high school and I wouldn't have earned a college degree. It’s a privilege for me to have been a sponsored child and to be able to fulfill my dream of becoming a teacher and have a better life.”

Meet Souleymane

Meet Souleymane

“Sponsorship gives thousands of children access to primary education and potable water in some of the poorest communities in Mali. Without Sponsorship, these opportunities would be a distant, unrealistic dream for many of these children.”


Meet Gloria

Gloria enjoyed participating in Sponsorship programs so much as a child. Her daughter and twin grandsons went on to have sponsors of their own. Gloria’s story shows how Sponsorship can lead to generations of success.
