“Alone, we can do so little; together, we can do so much.”  
– Helen Keller

Through the years, many of us thrive by connecting with others.
We feel a sense of closeness and belongingness when we have supportive relationships with the people around us.
When two or more people interact with each other, we feel valued, seen, and heard. 

That is the same power that comes with Child Sponsorship!  

By building a relationship with your sponsored child, you can instill hope that they can thrive and dream big.
A brighter future is possible, and your help through partnering with us would make all the difference. 

 

THE POWER IS IN YOUR HANDS!

All it takes is $45/month for the sponsorship of one child – your funds will help provide basic needs for the children in five areas:
Child Protection, Education, Health & Food Security, Livelihoods & Microfinance, Clean Water & Sanitation.

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

However, we know that $45/month might be a tricky amount for some individuals, so here's an alternative – Crowdfunding.
Imagine just what you could do, if you managed to gather two or more people together to sponsor two or more children.
Wait no more, rally your friends and family to experience this magic for yourselves!

I WANT TO START CROWDFUNDING

 

Not to worry, we do have an option if you would like to sponsor one child on your own too:

HOW CHILD SPONSORSHIP CHANGES A CHILD’S WORLD

Poverty is an extremely complex issue and can become a vicious cycle, leaving those affected feeling hopeless. Child sponsorship adopts a holistic approach, where we maximise your monthly contribution of $45 by providing your sponsored child and other vulnerable children access to basic needs in mainly five areas:

 
 
CHILD PROTECTION

 

 Children and communities are empowered to protect children from abuse and injustices through education and the establishment of support systems.

 
 
EDUCATION

 

 With access to quality education and a conducive learning environment, children are empowered and equipped to build a brighter future.

 
 
HEALTH & FOOD SECURITY

 

 Families are equipped to attain food security and educated on children’s nutritional needs to ensure their proper growth and development.

 
 
LIVELIHOODS & MICROFINANCE

 

Families and communities are equipped to develop skills for sustainable livelihood opportunities, which instils hope and aspirations for the future.

 
 
CLEAN WATER & SANITATION

 

Access to clean water protects children from avoidable diseases while sanitation practices eliminate preventable diseases and reduce child mortality rates.
 

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

 

 
 

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.

 

 
 
BUILDING THE FOUNDATION

 

During the first 3 years of development, we work closely with local leaders to identify challenges the community faces. Our team then maps out an action plan with the resources needed to create a healthy, sustainable environment.

 
 
EVALUATE & GROW

 

More members of the community become involved in leading and owning the projects during the middle phase of the programme (years 4 to 10). This period if also a time to make any necessary adjustments to projects, so goals are met.

 
 
ENHANCE SUSTAINABILITY

 

By years 11 to 15, the impact of your support is tangible. Families’ living conditions are improving, and they are empowered to independently continue the work you helped start.

 

 

 
 

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU SPONSOR A CHILD

 
 
You build a relationship

 

Each child is uniquely sponsored by one sponsor, you! When you sponsor a child, you receive a welcome kit, a World Vision online account, and get the chance to connect with your sponsored child through letters and gifts, or even visit in person!

 
 
You transform a child’s world

 

Your monthly $45 sponsorship donation joins forces with other sponsors’ donations to support projects and activities designed to meet local needs and transform the world where your sponsored child lives.

 
 
Celebrate the progress

 

As your sponsored child grows and continues to benefit from the programmes which your donations go towards, you instil hope that they can thrive and dream big. Witness the impact of your donations through annual progress reports sent to you, where you see the change you’re helping to make possible.

 
 
A brighter future is possible

 

As a child sponsor, you get the chance to hear how you are supporting work that helps prepare and equip your sponsored child’s community to continue its own development activities in the long term, without World Vision’s assistance. Your help makes all the difference: communities blossom and becomes safer and self-sustainable!

 

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