Child sponsorship is an effective, inspiring and rewarding way to help provide children in need with brighter futures.

You can connect with your sponsored child in so many meaningful ways.
  • A welcome pack, introducing your child
  • Your first letter from your child (within 12 weeks)
  • Regular child photo and updates
  • Annual progress reports from your child's community
  • Complimentary greeting cards to send to your child
  • The life-changing opportunity to visit your sponsored child

Raewyn and Brent, Child Sponsors

"Sponsoring children has been an enriching experience for our family. Exchanging cards and letters nurtures a tangible bond with our sponsored children. We were privileged to visit our sponsored child and her community where we witnessed transformative community activities firsthand which affirmed the positive impact of our support."

"I felt honored to have gotten the sponsor. It motivates me to study harder. My favourite letter was when she asked about my well-being and wished me a happy birthday. Then she talked about her birthday and the culture she came from. It made my heart smile."

Be Chosen

Be Chosen


Instead of choosing a child to sponsor, you can sign up to be chosen by a child. Send in your photo and empower a child to choose you as their sponsor!

Prepare to step into a life-changing connection with your sponsored child and their community. You'll empower a child to make lasting change in their own life – and even in yours.

It's fun to find out who chose you and why. "Because you look smart" and "You're a united and cute family" are just some of the sweet reasons that children have shared so far. It's a life-changing first choice you can give a child today.

What is Child Sponsorship?

Child Sponsorship changes children's lives by transforming the community where they live. Using your donations, we identify the causes of children's poverty and vulnerability and create development projects to address them. Child sponsorship pairs one sponsor with one child and allows you to connect through letters and photos.


Can a child choose me as their sponsor?

Yes, a child is now able to choose you as their sponsor. You can sign up to be Chosen. Whether you are chosen, or choose a child, your sponsorship will make a life-changing difference not only to the sponsor child but to the whole community. It's a pretty amazing thing to be a part of!


If I sponsor a child, where does my money go?

To change a child’s life, you have to change the world in which they live. Your money doesn't go directly to your sponsor child, or their family, but enables World Vision to work with their entire community to make long-term sustainable change for everyone. As a member of the community, your sponsor child receives the benefits of this incredible change.
