"What is Community Sponsorship?"

By becoming a Community Sponsor, you are supporting life-changing programmes in some of the world's poorest communities. For just over $1/day, your donations will be used to fund priority projects from the community's Road Map, their plan for the next 10 to 15 years.

Sustainable impact

You can help a community reach self-reliance.

Through our Road Map approach, your monthly support helps the community you sponsor to achieve their long-term goals. Over the years, you'll see big changes, thanks to your support.

Our impact

Sponsorship creates sustainable change for children and their families.

By sponsoring a community, your monthly support is used to provide support where it's needed most: improved education, water, healthcare and towards keeping children safe from harm. 

Where we urgently need sponsors:

"Is community sponsorship like sponsoring a child?"

For many of our sponsors, building a relationship with a child in the community they support is one of the most rewarding parts of the sponsorship experience. However, we know that not all supporters want the full child sponsorship experience. If you want to create sustainable change for children, youth and their families (without the need to sending letters and gifts), Community Sponsorship may be right for you.
