Child Sponsorship

Supporting entire communities with education, health care, clean water and farming

Transforming entire communities

This projects supports child sponsorship, not only benefitting the individual child but the community where they live. Because of community focused solutions, child sponsorship is a proven method to help break the poverty cycle.

The need

Poverty is responsible for the deaths of six million children before their fifth birthday. Child Sponsorship focuses on the things that prevent children from surviving and thriving - and then works with the community to bring all the pieces of the puzzle together.

Child Sponsorship not only benefits the individual child but the community where they live. For every 1 child sponsored, another 4 benefit. Because of community focused solutions, it’s a proven method to help break the poverty cycle by helping meet basic needs for things like clean water, healthcare, education, improved farming and income opportunities.

The objective

The success and simplicity of the ‘One Child’ Sponsorship commitment, is that your business’ impact increases relative to your business growth. For instance, if you are a business that has multiple retail stores and becomes a ‘One Store One Child’ partner, you would sponsor as many children as you have stores. As your business continues to grow, each time you open a new store you would sponsor an additional child. It’s an exciting and achievable way to have mass impact over time.

 Your Pledge: Transforming entire communities 

The objective of our Child Sponsorship project is to sponsor as many children as possible within multiple communities and countries. With our sponsorship project dedicated to specific communities, our impact is amplified and allows for field trips to visit multiple sponsor children at once.
