The power to choose
in a child's hand.

Rosemary, 9, Kenya

A new invitation to Child Sponsorship

Chosen is a child’s unique opportunity to transform their life — and yours. See what happens when a child, like Collins, chooses you as their sponsor.



Be part of New Zealand's first choosing party!
Sponsors are being chosen by children in
Bangladesh, on December 17th, 2019.


How it works


Sign up and submit your photo.
Your name and photo are sent to a sponsorship community, where staff are setting up the kids' choosing party! (Stay tuned for the date.)


A child will choose YOU.
Some kids have waited for years to be chosen by a sponsor. Now, at the choosing party, it's their turn. Which child will choose you?


You'll see your gifts at work ...
You'll get regular updates on the changes you're making in your Sponsored Child's life, through community projects that help ALL kids thrive.


... and celebrate the progress!
You are a part of a mutually transforming journey that empowers kids and communities to build lasting change. Children have the power to change their own lives... and your life too.

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. As a member of this community, your Sponsor Child receives the benefits of this incredible change and their own lives are transformed.

What is a choosing party?

A choosing party is an empowering experience where children come together in their community, and for the first time, get to choose a sponsor. At a choosing party, photos that sponsors have submitted are displayed, and children are invited to choose their sponsor from the selection of photos. After choosing, they write a letter to their sponsor, letting them know why they chose them.

How long will I sponsor my child?

In most cases, it will be throughout their childhood and into their teens. Most children will be in the sponsorship programme until their community has begun to reach most of its goals, and become self-sustainable. As a project comes to a close we will let you know of the achievements in the community so you can celebrate with us.

“He is a doctor, and that’s why I like them, and they are all smiling. I saw many but have chosen the best! I love you!” - Milli, 5, Bangladesh

5-year-old Milli doesn’t know for sure if her Sponsor is a doctor, but because his shirt is tucked in and he wears glasses, she assumes he is.
Choosing her sponsor has empowered Milli to follow her own dream of one day becoming a doctor.
She sees her own family in the photo she chose, “I love them because they have three in the family, and we have three in the family. They have a daughter, and I am daughter.”
