Choose a child

Be Chosen

Instead of you finding 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.

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, when you sign up to be Chosen, you're empowering a child to choose you as their sponsor. Whether you are chosen, or choose a child, your sponsorship will make a life-changing difference for them and their 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 does not go directly to your sponsor child, but enables World Vision to work with their entire community and make long-term sustainable change for everyone. As a member of this community, your Sponsor Child receives the benefits of this incredible change.
