At Save the Children, we believe that child sponsorship has the power to drive change that ripples throughout children’s lives, their families and entire communities.
When you sponsor a child, you’re helping to ensure that they and so many others can grow up healthy, learning and safe – no matter where they were born. Too many children around the world aren’t getting the opportunity to reach their full potential. As a sponsor, you can help make real change.
Your sponsorship has made great strides for many children…
Dewormed 635,000 children
Vision and hearing screening for around 250,000 children
Distributed around 70,000 books to support literacy

Sponsorship is a voluntary, ongoing contribution that assists children and their entire communities. Save the Children’s sponsorship programmes are structured to remain in a community for 8 to 10 years. You may start sponsoring a child during the early stages of our work in their community or towards the end.
Regular donations provide a stable source of income to fund programs that achieve sustainable improvements in child survival, well-being and development.
Ultimately, it is up to you how long you decide to be part of our sponsorship program.
