WHAT IS THE CHILD SPONSORSHIP PROGRAM?

Child Sponsorship is a personal way to help one specific child fight poverty and have a better journey to adulthood. When you sponsor a child with the current regular amount of £30 a month, you are investing in their future in a practical way by providing basic needs like food, education, clothing, access to healthcare, and more.

Your Sponsorship gives a child much needed help that parents, for various reasons, cannot give. As a result, their overall well-being improves as physical and emotional needs are met.

HOW DOES A SPONSORSHIP CHANGE A CHILD'S LIFE?

1. HOME VISITS

Your child receives frequent home visits from an Open Hands worker to ensure their well-being. During these visits food, clothing and other needs are met.

2. EDUCATION

Your child is supported educationally (at school or by accessing our educational Rainbow or Lighthouse Program).

3. ADVOCACY

Open Hands advocates for your child with relevant government authorities, as well as doctors and hospitals.

HOW IS YOUR DONATION INVESTED?

Child Sponsorship provides long-term care for a child. We invest your monthly donation according to the particular needs of each child. Below you can see how your money might typically be spent.

WHAT TO EXPECT AS A SPONSOR

As a sponsor you will receive regular updates on your child’s progress and issues they may be dealing with. You also have the chance to exchange letters with your child and give presents on birthdays and at Christmas.

Without intervention, children in poverty become adults in poverty. You can help break the cycle of poverty by sponsoring a child.
