What is child sponsorship?

Friday, April 1, 2011 - 15:10

Child sponsorship gives hope to thousands of children around the world.

By sponsoring a child you could be making a real contribution to the present and future of a child, as you join a community of people across the world in the fight against poverty.

Your support will allow children to receive the things many young people take for granted; textbooks, clean water, the security of a classroom, and will shape a child’s life, giving them renewed positivity for the future.

Your connection with the child you sponsor will be unique, and you will receive information about them and the problems they face as well as receiving regular updates on their progress.

The money you donate will also go towards helping the community in which your child lives, ensuring that those around them also benefit.

Sponsoring a child with ActionAid is so easy to do, and will make a real change to the lives of those who need it the most.
