Chosen™ is a new invitation to Child Sponsorship, where for the first time, the power to choose is in a child's hands. The power to take hold of their future, to create change in their own lives and to transform their community. When you sign up to be Chosen™, your photo is sent to a Child Sponsorship community, where children take part in a choosing party and are empowered to choose their own sponsor.
Children don’t choose to be married off, to get sick, to work, or to live in fear.
But now, a child can choose you.
Through Chosen™, you can give a child the power to choose you as their sponsor.
A choice that can lead to clean water, life-saving healthcare and vaccines, nutritious food, and a safer and brighter future.
When you sign up to be Chosen™, your photo is sent to a Child Sponsorship community. There a child, like Collins, will choose you as their sponsor. You’ll be giving the most powerful gift of all – the gift to choose you.
See what happens when a child, like Collins, chooses you as their sponsor.
Sign up before the 23rd of May to be chosen by a child in Uganda, on May 25th, 2021.
Child Sponsorship empowers children, their families and their communities to help break the cycle of poverty. Your donation of $50 a month will help bring essentials like clean water, nutrition, education, healthcare and hope to a vulnerable child. It will help strengthen their entire community, caring for every child along the way and enabling the community to become resilient and self-sufficient.
Child sponsorship helps break the cycle of poverty by transforming communities.
Our decades of experience have proven that the most effective way to help a child is to strengthen their entire community, caring for every child along the way. In fact, because of our community-focused solutions, for every child you sponsor, 4 more benefit, too! Your sponsorship will help enable a community to lead their own development and become resilient and self-sufficient.
Your sponsorship keeps children safe. Children that are sponsored are regularly monitored, which protects them from dangerous situations and exploitation like child marriage and child labour. Sponsored children also are more likely to go to school and receive regular healthcare check-ups.
Please provide your name and phone number and we will be in touch to help.
How are you protecting children from COVID-19 at choosing parties?
We are doing all that is needed to keep children and their families as safe as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic. Specific safety measures for choosing party events will vary depending on the country.
If I sponsor a child where does my money go?
Your money does not go directly to your sponsor child, or their family, but enables World Vision to work with their entire community to have an even bigger impact and make long-term sustainable change for everyone. Your Sponsor Child receives the benefits of this incredible change and their own lives are transformed.
