Why sponsor a child in Bangladesh

Child Sponsorship transforms the lives of vulnerable children in countries all over the world, including Bangladesh.

We work with children and their families in some of the poorest areas of Bangladesh, where we target the root causes of ill-health and child trafficking.

We help shield children from poverty, inequality and injustice.

Sponsor a child in Bangladesh to give a child in need power over their own future.

Sponsor a child like Marua (right) and change their life today

When 740,000 Rohingya refugees poured across the border from Myanmar into Bangladesh, Ahmad, a father of five, felt for the Rohingya and did what he could to help.

But Ahmed’s health is poor – he’s had two strokes recently – and as a teacher his salary is low.

But there is hope in the air, as one of his daughters, Marua, 4, has a sponsor through World Vision.

Her mother hopes it will help her to get a better education.

Although only Marua is currently sponsored, the entire family, including her twin Safa, will benefit from the Child Sponsorship programme.

  • World Vision has had a Child Sponsorship programme for more than 70 years, we pair donors with a vulnerable child who needs protection and empowerment.

    Child Sponsorship brings much-needed change to more than just one child — the benefits you help provide extends to each child's family, their community and other children in need. 

    This is because World Vision partners, plans and works alongside local community members to help build healthy, sustainable communities for vulnerable children in the world’s hardest places. Learn more about how Child Sponsorship works. 

  • 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.
