Sponsor a girl

Fight for her right to live a life free of fear, abuse and violence.

Why sponsor a girl?

Right now, thousands of girls urgently need sponsors to help them build a fearless future. Girls all over the world are being forced into violent realities like child marriage, child labour and abuse. Every minute alone, 23 girls enter child marriage.

But these girls don’t need your pity – they need your anger.

Child Sponsorship pairs you with a child living in one of the toughest parts of the world.

By sponsoring a girl, you'll see that girl have more power over her future. You'll help her stay in school, so she can break free from the cycle of poverty and achieve anything she sets her mind to.

We urgently need child sponsors to transform girls lives today.
