Why it's important

Child sponsorship helps meet the very needs that afflict children across the globe:
  • Nearly 30,000 children die every day from preventable diseases
  • More than 110 million school-age children are not in school
  • In developing countries, 150 million children are malnourished

    Scripture tells us that we are crafted to serve God as part of our new lives in Christ. "For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do" (Ephesians 2:10). God made us to make a difference. Child sponsorship helps your congregation fulfill this purpose by joining God’s work in the world.
