End the wait
for a child in poverty

Poverty is a thief. It robs children of the right to grow up strong and healthy. It steals their time to play and denies them the chance to sit in a classroom and learn.

But you can change this. Become a sponsor and bring hope to a child who has been waiting many months for a sponsor.
