What Is Child Sponsorship?
Child sponsorship connects sponsors with children living in poverty. Through monthly giving, you can provide life-changing support in the form of education, critical medical care, food and so much more. Beyond the physical, sponsorship also addresses the emotional and spiritual needs of each child, empowering them to break free from the cycle of poverty and realize their worth in Christ.

How Child Sponsorship Helps
Have you ever wondered how child sponsorship helps? Does it really work? Yes! By sponsoring a child, you empower them to create a brighter future for themselves, their families and their communities.
By providing education, health care, food, clean water and other critical needs, you give your child the tools they need to thrive and reach their God-given potential.
In partnership with the local church, your child receives the education support they need to learn critical life skills, the medical care they need to defeat disease…the list goes on! Most importantly, they receive an introduction to Jesus and experience His incredible love for them.
In other words, child sponsorship helps break the vicious cycle of poverty while providing life-giving hope.
