Your support provides:

  • Medical checkups, which often save lives
  • Nutritious food
  • Health and hygiene training
  • Educational assistance
  • Access to special services like surgeries and disaster relief
  • Mentoring to help children discover their incredible value as God’s children
  • Most important of all, your sponsored child will hear about Jesus Christ and be encouraged to develop a lifelong relationship with God. Just imagine how exciting it will be when one day you get to heaven and your sponsored child is there with you because you chose to sponsor him or her.

When you sponsor a child, you'll receive your child's photo, personal story and a child sponsorship packet by mail in approximately 10 days.

When children find out they've been sponsored, the joy they feel is indescribable. Just knowing that someone across the globe cares means more than you can imagine. Sponsoring a child in need will profoundly change the future for your child, and will change your own life as well.

Sponsor a Child in Africa

The second largest continent in the world, Africa is home to nearly 955 million people. Poverty in Africa is increasing exponentially, particularly in eastern and southern Africa.

The average annual income in half of the countries in eastern and southern Africa is less than U.S. $400, or not much more than $1 a day. In sub-Saharan Africa, more than 218 million people live in extreme poverty. About two-thirds of the people in the world with HIV or AIDS live in Africa. Please sponsor a child in Africa today!
