Transform their life - and a whole community

Why sponsor a child in Tanzania

Child Sponsorship transforms the lives of vulnerable children living in poverty.

We work with some of the world's poorest children and their families in rural areas of Tanzania, where we address food and water shortages that threaten children, especially child refugees.

We help shield children from disease and malnutrition.

Sponsor a child in Tanzania and you can give a child in need power over their own future.

For £26 per month you can:

How your donations help

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

The impact of Child Sponsorship

Now with presence of modern latrines and hand wash facilities I feel safe at my school

Sponsor a child like Magreth and change their life today

Magreth, 11, is a student from a primary school in Tanzania.

She, among many other children, relied on the nearby river for water.

They shared the river with cows and goats. The water was contaminated with diseases.

Things are different now in Magreth's village. Through Child Sponsorship, World Vision helped to drill a borehole in the village.

No more waterborne diseases, no more digging river streams to fetch unclean water in dry seasons or walking for long distance to access water.

Magreth and other children at the village and primary school now have access to safe, clean water.

  • 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.
