Sponsor a child this Christmas
Imagine the difference you could make to a child’s life this Christmas
This Christmas, you can transform a child's life
2020 was a difficult year for all of us. Imagine if you made it count by changing the life of a child - for good.
Give a child a Christmas of Firsts
This year you can give a Christmas of Firsts to a child in need with Child Sponsorship.
This Christmas could be the first time a child tastes clean water, the first night they fall asleep feeling full, and maybe the first time they truly feel safe.
For just £26 a month, you could make this Christmas the first time you bring hope to a child in need.
From just 85p per day, you can provide...
You can help make sure families have the means to provide for their children - with your money we'll teach communities about growing stronger and effective farming techniques. We share knowledge of nutrition, helping families feed their children and saving millions of lives around the world.
You can make sure some of the most vulnerable children in the world escape abuse or exploitation, including child marriage. Together, we can give these children a safe and secure life and hope for the future.
By sponsoring a child, you can fund World Vision's volunteer healthcare assistants and essential vaccinations. Your donation will make sure we can help vulnerable families to help protect their children from infection and disease, including coronavirus.
You can stop children dying from drinking dirty water. Sponsorship helps us build boreholes and clean water taps – so no mother has to give her child dirty drinking water, or none at all. Clean water saves lives, keeps children healthy, and allows them to go to school.
You can help World Vision teach new skills, and support mothers to start their own businesses. We're helping families gain a stable income so they can afford the essentials, like healthcare, nutrition, and education.
Our work is about making sure communities and children can lead fulfilling lives, without our help. So when a community has everything that it needs, we move on. Sponsoring a child creates the teachers, nurses and community leaders of the future.
Because of our community-focused solutions, for every child sponsored, 4 more children benefit, too.
Your Child Sponsorship experience
Not long after you begin your sponsorship, you'll receive your first letter from your sponsored child. They'll tell you more about themselves, what they like to eat and play, and ask questions about you. You may even receive a drawing, made just for you!
You'll see the improvements being made to the lives of the entire community in regular updates. From new projects such as borehole installations, to how much longer we'll be working in the community, and how the lives of other children in the community are changing too.
You'll witness as your sponsored child reaches key milestones in their life, thanks to you. Whether it's their first day of school, first time playing with their friends, or first new pair of shoes - you'll be there to share in their excitement.
How does Child Sponsorship work?
When you sponsor a child, you change the life of them and everyone in the community, for good. Your £26 a month will help give the community the essentials they need to thrive and become self-sufficient.
Sponsorship means helping communities to help themselves.
From access to education, clean water, nutritious food, healthcare, and so much more - both you and your sponsored child can share wonderful first experiences.
Shemi's sponsorship story
For Shemi and her children, sponsoring Vincent has brought so much joy. Her sponsorship began when she had her first son Adam and she realised other children wouldn't have all the wonderful experiences he would.
What your sponsorship could do
Imagine if the first thing you had to do when you woke up every day was walk miles to collect water for your family. Now imagine your first taste of clean water from a tap next to your home.
For Akuamoah and everyone in his community, having clean water available straight from the tap has changed everything. Now, instead of spending hours of his day walking to the water hole, he can use that time to study, read, or simply play with his friends.
Now for the first time, Akuamoah doesn't have to worry about missing school for days because dirty drinking water has made him sick. By becoming a child sponsor, you can make this Christmas the first time a child like Akuamoah can feel safe to be a child.
Give the incomparable gift of transforming a child's future, and that of their community by choosing to sponsor them this Christmas.
