Through Child Sponsorship, not only do you choose the community your monthly donations will go to support, but you’ll also be able to build a relationship with a child in that community.
Simply let us know your preference of community, age and gender, and we will send you the profile of the child who needs you the most.
But we don’t just send your money overseas and hope it makes a difference. Instead, we work closely with local organisations to create a plan that takes your sponsored child’s community towards self-reliance. We are constantly monitoring our progress in your sponsored child’s community – ensuring that everything we do there takes the community closer to sustainability.
As part of the Child Sponsorship programme, you’ll hear first-hand stories about the changes that are happening in their community, directly from letters and photos from the child you support.
For $55 per month, you will be creating long-term change in a community where ChildFund works and building a life-long relationship with a child who lives there. Your support will help us improve access to education, clean water and sanitation, healthcare and child protective services for your sponsored child, and their community. A portion of your monthly support will also be used towards our Future Fund, giving ChildFund the ability to help children well into the future.
