FAQs

What do I receive as a Child Sponsor? 

You get to be a part of your Sponsored Child’s life and to witness their community’s transformation. You’ll receive regular news about progress and achievements in your child’s community, annual updates and photos of your child and you’ll be able to connect with letters and emails.

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.

Can I visit my Sponsored Child?

Yes, visiting your Sponsored Child offers a unique opportunity to see first-hand the difference your sponsorship has made. If you are planning to visit your Sponsored Child, please contact World Vision New Zealand at least three months before you plan to leave so we can make arrangements with World Vision in the country you will be visiting. 

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.
