This is a unique and exciting child sponsorship opportunity!

By becoming a sponsor, you will help break the cycle of poverty for your sponsored African child AND their family.
Amigos is so passionate about change that we don’t want to focus on just one young family member - we want to see a whole family flourish and move from dependence to dignity.

When life is hard, children suffer. Help a young African child thrive today by joining our unique and dynamic child sponsorship programme. 

Every child is special. Every child deserves a bright future. For less than the price of a daily postage stamp you can be the difference in a child’s life, providing education, nutrition and healthcare.


Child Sponsorship is linked to our very effective rural farming programme which is the key to its success – equipping caregivers to feed their families and set up small businesses to generate an income. Providing a ‘complete package’ means that over time families no longer rely on hand-outs but can support themselves.


Be amazed by the impact you're helping to create.

As soon as you sign up to sponsor a child you will receive a welcome pack which includes a photo and profile of the Ugandan child you’re supporting. The pack explains exactly how sponsorship works and you can write to your sponsored child immediately if you’d like to.

When you sponsor a child you get the chance to build up a friendship with them and become like their Aunty or Uncle. You will receive:

  • A photo of your sponsored child

  • A profile of your sponsored child

  • A handwritten letter from your sponsored child at least twice a year

  • If you decide to give a financial gift at Christmas you'll receive information detailing the life-changing present your sponsored child received

  • Once a year you will be sent a recent photo so you can see how your sponsored child is growing and developing with your support

Your one-to-one relationship with your sponsored child in Africa means you will see first-hand how your donation makes a difference. If you'd like to, you can even fly out to Uganda and visit your sponsored child.

Over time you’ll see how your support is helping to transform the life of your sponsored child, and the lives of those around them. The ripple effects of your kindness will be felt for many years to come.

OUR PROMISE TO YOU: Sponsoring a child through our local staff means we know what problems your sponsored child faces and what help he/she needs. We aim to achieve as much as possible with every penny you give us.

Nothing feels better than helping others, especially when you know your help provides lasting change

You might be considering sponsorship but feel £4 a week is more than you can afford. How about involving your wider family? Club together with three other relatives (or friends) and together you could help change a family for just £1 a week.
