Making a Difference

Meet the Children and Sponsors Forever Changed by Sponsorship

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 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.

Meet Souleymane
