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. From access to education, clean water, nutritious food and so much more - both you and your sponsored child can share wonderful first experiences.
While we’re working alongside the community to build lasting change, you’ll see the impact this has on your sponsored child.
You’ll be their only sponsor, and can exchange letters, you’ll receive photos and drawings too!
For 14-year-old Isata, life changed the first time clean water flowed in her Sierra Leone village. She used to spend three hours a day fetching water for her family - from the same place where people bathed and washed their clothes. "I got sick when I drank the water and then had to stay in bed for a long time".
Everything changed for Isata when World Vision began to support her community through child sponsorships and helped restore a water point near her home. With clean water finally available nearby, for the first time she can simply learn and play.
"Before I became a sponsored child, I couldn't even write my name," says Isata. "Now I can write well."
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.
"I would say to someone who is thinking about sponsoring a child, go ahead and do it. It's the most life changing thing ever, it's absolutely brilliant."
