Your sponsorship in action

From $48 per month, your sponsored child will receive:

  • Healthcare, hygiene training and supplementary food

    Children receive a healthy snack or meal when they attend program activities and may receive extra nutritious food if required. They receive regular health check-ups and learn how to take care of their bodies and form healthy relationships.

  • Age-appropriate Christian teaching and discipleship

    In a culturally sensitive way, children are given the opportunity to hear the gospel message. They learn how God has shown his love for the world by sending Jesus Christ, and how He has a plan and purpose for their lives.

  • Education, vocational training and life skills

    Children are supported to attend and stay in school. They also receive vocational training opportunities and extra-curricular activities such as sports, field trips, music and computer training.

  • Personal attention, guidance and love

    Our local church partners' workers love and care for the children in our Child Sponsorship Program, encouraging them to discover and pursue their unique gifts, passions and abilities. They'll also get to know the child's family, so the church can offer additional support where needed.
