Sponsoring a child means a fuller life for kids in need
A monthly gift of $39 provides your child and their community with life-changing opportunities like these:
4-year-old Paul, who lives in Uganda, beat malaria thanks to a Rapid Diagnosis Test kit. He lived to meet his new baby brother, Lucky.
7-year-old Marlene was able to continue school in the Congo even after becoming an orphan. She's learning to read!
Sonali from Bangladesh spends each day in a World Vision child-friendly space, where she is cared for, educated and protected while her mother works in a nearby brothel.
How child sponsorship works
1. You find a child you want to help
Look forward to the first letter from your child within 6-12 weeks. It’s the start of a one-on-one relationship, and a fuller life for both of you.

2. Your gift helps your sponsored child and their entire community
Your donation combines with gifts from all other sponsors who support kids in the same area. Translation? Long-term resources for everyone. Nice!
Nearly 200 sponsored children in Mexico celebrate their birthday for the first time at a community birthday celebration.
3. Local staff makes your donations go the extra mile
Children don’t get direct cash benefits. Better yet, our staff creates a sustainable plan for funds that keeps communities out of poverty, even once we’ve moved on to help friends living in another area.
