Your tax-deductible contribution of just $43 a month connects a baby living in need with a loving, church-based Child Sponsorship Program.

You can be the answer to a mother's prayers for her child. Imagine if your baby lived in extreme poverty. You would be desperate to find your baby help to give them a good start in life and would be so grateful to the person who provided her with hope.

Your support provides:

  • Basic Nutrition Clean water, healthy food, vitamins and monthly growth monitoring
  • Health Care Interventions Critical medical resources and immunizations
  • Support and Love Home visits, parenting workshops and infant cognitive support through a local church, trained and equipped to assist children in poverty.

As your baby grows he or she will transition into more age appropriate support including:

  • 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.

The Facts.

  • More than 1 million children under the age of 5 died last year
  • Half of these deaths were preventable or treatable
  • Approximately 45% were due to nutrition-related factors

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

Sponsoring a baby in need will profoundly change the future for your child, and will change your own life as well.  Your support will help a baby get off to a healthy start in life.  Forever onward your stories will be woven together.


Through a relationship with a local church and a caring sponsor, a child is able to discover his or her true value.
