What you’ll receive

As a sponsor you will have a one-to-one connection with your sponsored child. You can exchange letters and drawings, and see first-hand what life is like for your sponsored child, their family and community. Your donations will fund essential, life-changing projects that benefit whole communities in the country where your sponsored child lives. You’ll be helping to give every child a chance from as little as 65p a day.

Why children need your support

Xinh, 10, is a sponsored child from Vietnam – a country that is vulnerable to the devastating effects of natural disasters. Thanks to support from our sponsors, we are able to teach children like Xinh how they can stay safe during emergencies.

When she grows up, Xinh wants to become a doctor so she can help cure diseases in her community.

With your support, we can help Xinh and children all over the world to achieve their dreams.
