Child Sponsor, Harriet

"I have one sponsored child at the minute, Rimer, he's eleven. Being a mum I feel like I want to help someone else's child."

"It's really heart warming. It's so nice to just read about what he's doing and his family life. His school work and seeing the improvement in his writing is lovely."

Harriet, mum-of-two and sponsor for 11 years

Child sponsor, Amanda Redman

Amanda's daughter Emily was the same age as Diaw, when they first began sponsoring her. They grew up alongside each other, in different continents, and formed a wonderful friendship.

"Diaw would write letters, to Emily particularly, and tell her about what was going on in her daily life... so I think that has opened her eyes in a way that has formed her to the young woman that she is now."
