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.

How Sponsorship Works

Lara* and her family are Syrian refugees who fled their country in hopes of a better life. Thanks to Save the Children's refugee sponsorship program, children like Yara are benefitting from protection, education, health and livelihoods support, counseling and psychological support. *Name changed for protection.

Sponsor a Refugee Child Like Lara

Children make up more than half of the world’s 22.5 million refugees*. Many have known nothing but war, deprivation and fear. They aren’t in school and often struggle to find the basic essentials – their lives and futures at risk.

You can help. By sponsoring a refugee child in Egypt, like Lara**, you can be a hero in her life and in the lives of other children in her community. With your steady support, they’ll finally have the chance to grow up healthy, learning and safe.

Because every child, everywhere, deserves a future.

When you sponsor a child, two lives are changed: a child's and yours!
