Empower a child
to overcome poverty

Give a child living in extreme poverty a brighter future by becoming their sponsor. Our world-class programme gives kids a safe place to play, the chance to go to school and the opportunity to see a doctor when they’re sick.

Over time, you'll be able to see the difference you're making through your letters and photo updates.
