How the child sponsorship journey started

Most people take up child sponsorship when they have an income and want to help the needy. Ryan became a sponsor when he was just 7. 

For his 7th birthday party, his parents asked the guests not to buy gifts, but to help contribute to a fund for Ryan to sponsor a child with World Vision. With the money collected, Ryan sponsored his first child from Lesotho.

Now, 13, he is one of the youngest trippers to visit Yaozhou, China to meet his sponsored child.

Project HungerFree was held on 15 July 2017 at the Bukit Timah Campus of the National University of Singapore. It was a humanitarian-themed youth festival, complete with music performances and a documentary photography exhibition, which allowed students and young professionals to deepen their understanding about the challenges in the developing world.
