Why sponsor a child in Senegal

Child Sponsorship transforms the lives of vulnerable children.

We help shield children in Senegal from exploitation, trafficking and malnutrition.

By sponsoring a child in Senegal, you can give a child living in poverty power over their own future.

The impact of Child Sponsorship

Many have come, but World Vision came and did something concrete and children’s lives have changed forever

Before Child Sponsorship came to Boubacar's village in Senegal, it was the poorest in its municipality.

According to local staff, child sponsors’ partnership with the community of Tonguia has built a “brighter, healthier, stronger future for children and their families”.

Before Child Sponsorship, 39% of children in the village suffered from malnutrition. Now, thanks to sponsors, only 0.2% of children are malnourished.

Boubacar has seen incredible transformation as well, attending new educational programmes inside and outside the school, and benefitting from the help of newly trained teachers.

  • 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.
