Sponsor a child in Myanmar

Transform their life - and a whole community

Why sponsor a child

Child Sponsorship transforms the lives of vulnerable children in Myanmar.

We work with children and their families and communities in some of the poorest areas of Myanmar, where we prioritise improving education, access to health services and child protection measures.

We help shield children from extreme poverty, abuse, exploitation and ill health.

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

We have many wonderful children in Myanmar who urgently need a sponsor. But due to restrictions, children from Myanmar can't be sponsored via our website.

How your donations help

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

Why World Vision


  • You can easily sign up to sponsor a child in Myanmar by calling our Supporter Care Team on 01908 84 10 10, or sponsor a child from another country on our Sponsor a Child page.

  • 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.
