Sponsoring a child through World Vision can be a life-changing experience in itself. But meeting your sponsored child in person will likely be a moment you’ll remember forever, as Jo from Minnesota discovered.

Visiting your sponsored child’s community provides a firsthand look at the challenges faced in the region where your child lives. Plus, you’ll get to meet in person the boy or girl who benefits from your love, prayers, and commitment.

If you’re already a sponsor, learn more about the possibility of visiting your sponsored child.

And if you haven’t yet sponsored a child, consider sponsoring a boy or girl in need today. You can help equip a child, family, and entire community to escape poverty through life-giving basics like nutritious food, clean water, medical care, education, spiritual nurture, and more.

You can also make a one-time donation to our Sponsorship Ministry Fund. This fund helps World Vision meet the needs of children who are still waiting for sponsors. It also helps us respond to emergencies that take place in sponsorship communities around the world.
