How can I help the poor through World Vision?
By helping children living in such extreme poverty we can enable them to experience the fullness of life God offers. Join World Vision and individuals all over the world as we seek to bring compassion and justice to the world's poorest people. As a child sponsor, you can help save a child from a life of poverty.
What is child sponsorship?
Wonderful things happen when you make the choice to sponsor a child. For only about $1 a day, you'll show your child God's unconditional love by providing them with access to critical resources such as:
- Clean Water
- Nutritious food
- Health care
- And more!
What do I receive as a child sponsor?
- A welcome kit with a photo and information about your sponsored child
- The opportunity to correspond by mail
- Yearly progress reports with updated photos
- The joy of changing a young life forever!
Will I get to know my sponsored child?
You'll also have the chance to build a relationship with your sponsored child that will transform both your lives. "I know my sponsor," says Solange, an 11-year-old sponsored girl from Rwanda. "She writes me letters. I love her very much."
How does sponsorship work?
The benefits you help provide extend to each child's family, their community, and other children in need. That's because World Vision plans and works alongside local community members to find solutions that will change the future for their children, and their children's children.
Why sponsor a child through World Vision?
World Vision's child sponsorship program creates real, lasting change for children and their communities. Our compassionate, Christian staff show God's love to all people as they help build healthy communities for children in the world's most impoverished places. World Vision partners with sponsored children's communities over the long term to address critical needs and help communities become self-sustaining.
