Help save a child's life in an AIDS-affected community
More than 15 million children around the world have lost one or both parents to HIV and AIDS. Each one of these children has a name. Each one needs hope.
You can make a difference right now in the life of an orphan or vulnerable child affected by HIV and AIDS. Become a HopeChild sponsor through World Vision.
Sponsoring a child for about $1 a day can help change the life of an orphan or vulnerable child living in a community with a high prevalence of HIV and AIDS.
Being a sponsor will give you the chance to build a meaningful relationship with one special child who will know you by name as you correspond and share your lives with each other. Your monthly gifts will also be used to help other orphans and vulnerable children living in AIDS-affected communities.
The Hope Initiative is an unprecedented campaign to address the needs of children, families, and communities that have been devastated by the global HIV and AIDS pandemic.
World Vision has helped bring Americans together to care for the millions of orphans, widows, and other vulnerable children affected by HIV and AIDS.
Through the Hope Initiative, World Vision is helping to turn the tide against HIV and AIDS around the world. Orphans and vulnerable children often do not have enough food to eat, have no access to proper medical care, cannot attend school, and face abuse and neglect. In many cases, they must care for sick and dying parents as well as younger siblings.
Your sponsorship gifts are pooled with those of other sponsors to make the maximum impact in your child's community. You child and his or her family and community will receive access to things like clean water, nutritious food, health care, education, agricultural assistance, and more.
In addition to meeting urgent daily needs, you'll provide assistance like trained counselors who look after children, help them care for sick parents and promote values of abstinence and marital fidelity.
Your gifts will also help other orphans and vulnerable children living in AIDS-affected communities.
When you sign up to become a HopeChild sponsor, you join a family of more than 2 million sponsors around the world who share your commitment to help build a better future for children.
World Vision's child sponsorship program creates real, lasting change for children and their communities.
