Animals provided in Guatemala through World Vision’s Gift Catalog program keep on giving after the initial gift. Through a program called Pasando la Bendición, or Passing the Blessing, more families in need receive animals that provide them with reliable nutrition and income.
Two ways to sponsor a child
When you sponsor a child for $39 a month, you’ll show God’s love by helping establish sustainable access to basics like clean water, improved nutrition, quality education, healthcare, economic opportunity, spiritual nurture, and more.
The power to choose in a child’s hands®
Mayilche from Ghana
Mayilche from Ghana mirrors the enthusiasm of the sponsor she chose, a teen girl named Mila from Indiana. In Mayilche’s first letter to Mila, she writes, “God bless you for making me happy.”
Greisy from Guatemala
Greisy, 3, lives in a remote area of Guatemala where poverty takes away most choices. But getting to choose her own sponsor? Her smile says it all.
You’ll be stepping into a life-changing connection that empowers the child and their community for a future filled with opportunity. That’s because your monthly sponsorship will help ensure access to essentials that can open doors for kids to experience life in all its fullness.BE CHOSEN
Fahin from Bangladesh
Fahin, 4, lives in Bangladesh and chose the Pontius family from Minnesota as his new sponsors. He chose them because, “I feel like I already know him!”
