How long does Child Sponsorship last?

Ideally, Child Sponsorship is a long-term commitment lasting for the duration of our work in a particular community, which typically lasts for 10-15 years.

But how long child sponsorship lasts will be different for each sponsor. Some sponsors join us at the beginning of our work in their sponsored child’s community and others join us towards the end.

Sponsorship can end for a number of reasons. These include:

  1. Our work in a community is completed.
  2. Your sponsored child finished school or began to earn an income.
  3. Your sponsored child’s family moved away from the community in which World Vision is working.

Whatever the reason, we’ll notify you when your sponsorship comes to an end. At that time, we can discuss how you can continue your sponsorship with another child.
