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.
Your first letter or drawing
Child sponsorship is a unique relationship.
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!
Your first community update
Your sponsorship will help the entire community.
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.
Your first moment of pride
Child sponsorship is life-changing.
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 their 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.
"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."
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.
This is the story for Akuamoah and everyone else in his community in Ghana. For them, 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 and community sponsor, you can make this Christmas the first time a child like Akuamoah can feel safe to be a child.
