HOW SPONSORSHIP WORKS
Since 2015, Chelsea has sponsored children in Colombia, Ghana, India, Indonesia and Thailand – children just like 11-year-old Nisha, who enjoys going to school to make new friends and learn poems. Through child sponsorship, we’ve been able to work with Nisha’s community in India to promote immunisation, install water pumps, reduce child marriage and help more children go to school.
When you sign up to become a sponsor, you’ll make a difference to a whole community too – and you’ll see the impact you’re making through the letters and drawings your sponsored child will send to you.

PROJECTS YOU'VE SUPPORTED
Around the world, we work with children who have survived conflict, violence and trauma. For children living in refugee camps in Jordan, Bangladesh and Ethiopia, playing football enables them to have fun, learn and enjoy their childhood – while football competitions bring communities together so children can play and make friends.
In Tanzania, we’re training football coaches to recognise, raise awareness of and prevent dangerous practices affecting girls. Football training sessions provide a safe space where girls and boys can perfect their skills while learning about the impact of FGM, early marriage and the importance of education. Football tournaments also provide a platform for discussing important issues and bringing the wider community into the conversation.
