Your tax-deductible contribution of just $38 a month connects a child living in poverty with a loving, church-based Child Sponsorship Program.

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 Special Needs Child

The children pictured here have difficult lives. Not only are they desperately poor, but they also deal with mental and/or physical challenges. It's tough to grow up in poverty. These special needs just multiply the challenges for these children!

Between 120 and 150 million children in the world cope with mental and/or physical challenges. These children are vulnerable to:

  • Discrimination
  • Neglect
  • Abuse and exploitation
  • In fact, less than 2 percent of the world's special needs children attend school.

It is difficult for these special needs children to have hope for the future when their options for developmentally appropriate interventions and education are limited. They urgently need sponsors to care for them and cherish them as precious creations of God.

Be an instrument of Christ's love and sponsor a child with a special need. Your tax-deductible support of just $38 per month will provide your child:

  • Educational opportunities
  • Health care and supplemental nutrition, if necessary
  • Safe, healthy recreation
  • Opportunities to learn important life skills
  • And most important, the opportunity to hear the gospel

Make a lasting difference in the life of a child. Choose to sponsor a child with special needs.
