How much does sponsoring a child cost?

Transform a child's life - for 85p a day.

How much does sponsoring a child cost

Sponsoring a child with World Vision costs just 85p a day, or £26 a month.

And because of our community-focused solutions, for every child you help, four more children benefit too. Why? Because we work together with whole communities, with faith groups and churches, with local authorities and local partners, so we can help children get what they need, in the best way. We have an international presence, working with partners, communities and donors in almost 100 countries to make a key difference to vulnerable children in need.

When you give through Child Sponsorship, your monthly donation is pooled together with those from other sponsors to create lasting change in your sponsored child’s community, as well as other sponsorship communities around the world. 

Where your money goes

The best way to change a child’s life is to change their whole community.

We work together with communities to tackle the root causes of poverty.


By sponsoring a child, you protect them today and empower them tomorrow.

Do something incredible today.

How does my sponsored child benefit?

Children all over the world are faced with the toughest of challenges, facing poverty, war and conflict; threatened by child marriage and malnutrition. The effect of Child Sponsorship in their lives means they can live a healthier life, with access to nutritious food, clean water, healthcare and educational resources - providing them with everything they need to break free from the cycle of poverty and achieve their true potential.

When you sponsor a child, they will experience the encouragement and hope of knowing someone cares. And you can grow this together, by exchanging letters and cards. Your child might also take part in special children's events and celebrations.

Your monthly donations don't go directly to your sponsored child or their family. Experience has taught us that work to benefit the whole community is far more effective and lasts longer.

Rather, your sponsorship funds long-term, sustainable improvements in education, health, water, family incomes and child protection. And your sponsored child can benefit from each of these changes, now and in their future.

Your experience as a child sponsor

As a child sponsor you are able to exchange letters and cards to keep in touch. You might even have the chance to visit your sponsored child. This allows you to build a lasting friendship, offer support to your sponsored child and learn all about their sponsorship journey – providing you with confidence that your money is achieving life-changing differences to some of the world’s most vulnerable children.

How your monthly donations can transform lives

Girl from Kenya smiles at camera in field

Nancy was sponsored as a young girl in Kenya.

When she was a child, there was a drought and most of the local livestock died.

World Vision constructed water tanks so everyone had water, and provided food.

Nancy became one of the first girls in her community to graduate high school and was inspired to become a humanitarian.

She says "It was rare to find girls who had made it to high school. My sister is the first to graduate and then I’m second.”

Every child deserves to live their dreams like Nancy.
