Why sponsor a child in Niger

Child Sponsorship transforms the lives of vulnerable children in Niger.

We work with children and their families and local community in some of the poorest areas of Niger, where we prioritise education, improve health facilities, provide clean drinking water, and develop food sources.

With the help of child sponsors, we shield children from extreme poverty and make sure they don't go hungry.

By sponsoring a child in Niger, you can give a child in need power over their own future.

For £26 per month you can:

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

The impact of Child Sponsorship

Sponsor a child like Mariama and change their life today

12-year-old Marima used to have to walk for hours to find water for her family in Tera, Niger.

Now, thanks to her sponsor, and those of other children in her community, new boreholes, wells and water kiosks have been built in Tera.

Having safe water helps families improve their hygiene, from using toilets and washing their hands to keeping their dishes, homes and clothes clean. That’s preventing illnesses like diarrhoea.

Local groups are monitoring all the water points, and have been trained on how to maintain them, making sure they continue to provide safe clean water for the community going forward.

The difference this makes is stark. In 1999, only 50% of families in Tera had easy access to safe water. In 2019, 80% did.

  • 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.
