Sponsor a Child

Families in Ethiopia, Guatemala and India live in extreme poverty. Every day, they fight off hunger, disease, violence and the instability that threatens to tear them apart. Children are the most vulnerable of all, and they don’t deserve to live in fear and without hope. They wonder: What will happen to my family? Will I eat today? Can I go to school? When will my life change for the better?

When you become a sponsor, you do more than show your child that you care. You change their life. Your support provides customized, one-to-one support and resources that your child and their family need to thrive. You’ll stay connected with your child through photos, letters and personal updates. The impact your kindness is making will warm your heart, knowing you’re personally helping a vulnerable child and their family change the course of their future.
