Worldwide, 356 million children live in extreme poverty. Poverty robs children of their basic rights to learn, play and grow. In its ugliest form, poverty can lead to exploitation, child labour and even death. It's unacceptable.
That's why our Child Sponsorship Program exists. Because more powerful than poverty is the hope of Jesus, the care of a local church and the encouragement of you: a loving sponsor.
- Jesus is at the heart of what we do. Each of the 2 million children in our program has the chance to hear the life-changing message of Jesus’ love. We believe Jesus is the ultimate source of hope: both for the immediate and the eternal.
- Our Child Sponsorship Program meets the specific needs of each individual child. When you become a sponsor, you're personally connected with a boy or girl who will know your name and treasure the thought you care about them.
- Our program is run entirely by local Christian churches in Africa, Asia, Central America and South America. Why? Local churches are experts on their community’s needs. We equip them with resources and training to help them release children from poverty in Jesus’ name.
