Change a child's life this Christmas

As another year of uncertainty comes to a close, children in the most vulnerable places face more risk now than ever before.

But imagine if this Christmas, for the first time, you could help a hungry family eat until they are full. Or help a girl get water for the first time without fearing for her safety.

By sponsoring a child you can provide a family with life-saving food and so much more - from healthcare to education, and the chance for the whole community to break free from poverty. 

Make this a Christmas of Firsts.

How Child Sponsorship works

With Child Sponsorship you can change the life of a child – for good.  

When you sponsor a child with World Vision, you’re helping to transform their family and community too. 


The impact of Child Sponsorship 

Together through Child Sponsorship, we can make a 'first' possible for you and a vulnerable child: the first time a family gets clean water. The first time a hungry child receives a full meal.

For every child you help this Christmas, 4 more children benefit, too.

What child sponsors say

When Shemi had her first son, Adam, it made her want to do something for other children without the same opportunities as him. Her sons watched Rachael grow up letter by letter, rushing to open the envelopes, each time amazed at the transformation.

I would say to someone who is thinking about sponsoring a child - go ahead and do it, it is the most life-changing thing ever!

  • All of World Vision's work begins with listening to communities in need. Community leaders work with us to identify the most vulnerable children and families who will benefit from Child Sponsorship.

  • We work with national governments and other international agencies to identify the regions and communities that are most in need and where the most vulnerable children live. We then meet with community leaders and the wider community to gain a greater understanding of the challenges and the opportunities that exist for them and we develop a long-term plan together, to break the cycle of poverty.
