Sponsor a Child
Many families in the developing world struggle to stay together because of hunger, poverty, disease or conflict, putting their children at risk for abandonment. When you sponsor a child, you keep a vulnerable family together and make them stronger. Our Child Sponsorship program focuses on the most critical factors that help a family become more stable.
Your sponsorship helps provide personalized support and the resources a family needs to pay for food, school and other essentials.
