Together, we can help empower the next generation of girls.

Through Child Sponsorship, you can contribute to a generation of fearless girls.

When you sponsor a girl, you can help set her free from fear. Free to learn, grow and be the fearless girl she’s born to be. 


For only $45 a month, you join our incredible community of child sponsors who, like you, are dedicated to giving the most vulnerable girls a bright future. 


Meet Nancy: With the help of child sponsorship, Nancy became one of the first girls in her community to graduate from high school and was inspired to become an emergency aid worker.



Why Does World Vision Child Sponsorship Work? 


We have spent decades committed to the idea that stable productive communities raise healthy, happy children. To this end, our work promotes community-focused solutions, close partnerships with community leaders, churches, families and especially the children themselves. Our programme works because we help both the community and key individuals within it. The parents of sponsored children learn useful and important skills and receive income-generating opportunities that help them and their families for the long term, as well as other members of the community through the sharing of knowledge and resources.

Because of our community-focused solutions, for every child you help, 4 more children benefit, too.


Everything we do has just one goal: the well-being of children, especially the most vulnerable--not just for now, but for the long-term. Communities know their members best, which is why the community nominates children who are most at need to participate in the child sponsorship programme. The programmes then match each child with a single donor so no child is lost. Then with your help, we build a better and safer place for them to live in continuously monitor their well-being and progress. Our decades of experience has shaped our belief that your contributions are maximised when we pool resources from the collective support of all the sponsors rather than simply transferring your donation to your sponsored child. We have found that a holistic community-based solutions are far more effective and sustainable.

Over the last five years, 89% of the severely malnourished children we treated made a full recovery.

Holistic Transformation

Poverty is an extremely complex issue with many layers. Without access to clean water or medical facilities, it is difficult to be well enough to attend school or learn new skills; without an education, it is difficult to access opportunities and have financial resources.

Poverty can become a vicious cycle and leave those affected feeling hopeless. Therefore, child sponsorship must not be shortsighted. We take a holistic approach, pooling contributions towards tackling the many insidious reasons that poverty can bounce back.

We maximise your contribution by providing your sponsored child and other vulnerable children access to basic needs in mainly five areas

Every 60 seconds ... a family gets water ... a hungry child is fed ... a family receives the tools to overcome poverty.

Commitment to Sustainable Impact

We are committed to the process of transformation: We stay and work closely with each community for a decade or more. There are three phases to our approach, and the ultimate goal is to see communities take charge of their projects and see them through.

Your help makes all the difference: communities blossom and become safer and sustainable! Once that happens, we are ready to begin anew with another afflicted community.

Together we’ve impacted the lives of over 200 million vulnerable children by tackling the root causes of poverty.
Your donations are meant to help those in need. We do everything possible to reduce non-programme expenses, and in FY18 83.3% of total donations went directly to programmes that benefit children, families, and communities.

According to Singapore’s charity regulations, the total expenses incurred due to public fundraising appeals in a financial year must not exceed 30% of total donations collected through the public appeals in that year. At World Vision Singapore, the total expenditure was 16.7% of total funds raised in FY18.
