Child Sponsorship is a fundraising mechanism through which, individual sponsors support the development work of a community or country.
The concept of Child Sponsorship is that of a link between an individual donor supporter (usually in the north) and a child in the south. For ActionAid International (AAI), there is accountability at each end of the link.
In the community where the child lives, ActionAid makes certain commitments to how the child and community will be partners in the process of their empowerment, how this process will be carried out, what rights will be ensured for children and the community, what funds are being raised and how they are spent and what changes the program will seek to bring about in their lives.
At the supporter end of the link, ActionAid makes commitments as to how the supporters’ contributions will be spent, the expected outcomes as a result of this partnership, how they can engage with the child and community, how they can influence in their own country and what communications they will receive.
