Our carefully designed Child Sponsorship programme considers the child’s family by addressing the underlying causes of their poverty. While their child is enabled to access education and healthcare, their caregiver joins our Sustainable Community Development programme (find out more here), where they learn the farming, vocational and life skills they need so that after three years they are able to fully provide for their family and child’s education. In this way, they no longer have to depend on support but enjoy the dignity and satisfaction of seeing their family thrive by their own means.
