Sponsor a child in India

Transform their life - and a whole community

Great news! All of our registered children in India are currently being sponsored. 

There are many children in need of sponsorship around the world, just waiting for your support to transform their lives. Read below to learn about the difference your sponsorship could make.

Why sponsor a child

Child Sponsorship transforms the lives of vulnerable children.

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

Through our child sponsorship programme, we help shield children from poverty, inequality and injustice.

By becoming a sponsor, you can give a child in India power over their own future.

For £26 per month you can:

How your donations help

Because of our community-focused solutions, for every child you help, 4 more children benefit.

The impact of Child Sponsorship

We will do everything to give the best education to our children. Education is like food. We don’t want to let a day pass by without it.

Khushboo's mother

Sponsor a child like Khushboo (above), and change their life today

Khushboo, who is 15 years old, has been a sponsored child since 2010. Before then, her family had no toilet and had to walk 10-15 minutes to go to the toilet in the open, which was an ordeal, especially during monsoons.

However the biggest transformation has been in her ability to pursue education. Khushboo achieved the 16th highest marks in her whole district, scoring 92% at the State Matric Exam in 2019.

Her success is a testament of her commitment, and the education programmes she has been able to attend over the years.

Khushboo has outgrown the dress she received from her sponsor but she still holds on to the letter and the postcard.

She says, “It was because of the help from my sponsor that I could study well. I thank World Vision for the changes in my life. I attend every World Vision programme and have got lots of encouragement. My family and I want to thank you for all the help.”
