Sponsor a girl

Transform a girl's life - and a whole community forever.

Why sponsor a girl?

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

Why do girls need sponsors? Every year, nearly 12 million girls are forced into child marriage.

Girls in extreme poverty are less likely to be sent to school, and women and girls are more likely to suffer during humanitarian crises. That means they're more likely to become young mums struggling to care for their families, rather than thriving, successful young women with their whole lives ahead of them. 

By sponsoring a girl, you'll give a vulnerable girl power over her future. 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. We need you.

How sponsoring a girl changes her life


  • Select one of the children above to sponsor a girl, or visit our Sponsor a Child page to choose another child to sponsor. Or if you’d prefer, give our Supporter Care team a call on 01908 84 10 10.

  • 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.

  • As well as the peace of mind you’ll get knowing you are helping a young girl live her best life, your sponsored child will write letters to you, you’ll get photo and video updates on her achievements and create a lasting bond. This goes two ways, and you can also write letters and send presents to your sponsored child.
