Can I send my sponsored child money?

We ask that you don’t send money to your sponsored child:

  1. Sending money to an individual child and/or their family does not contribute to the long-term development goals of the sponsorship programme.
  2. Our field offices are not equipped to handle funds sent to them directly from sponsors.
  3. As with gifts, it may cause tension amongst family and community members.
  4. In some countries, it is against the law to receive and send foreign currency.
