Child Sponsorship

Child Sponsorship

Sponsor a child with a Christian organisation

The Need

Many children still live in poverty (estimates exceed 1 billion).  The results of child poverty include –  the side effects of poor nutrition; dangerous home environments, the inability to attend school, and children dying from treatable medical conditions, or poor water and sanitation.

The Response

Child sponsorship can provide many benefits to a child and their family and community. Benefits can include:

  • Raised education standard (which in turn helps future employment)
  • Medical care, improved diet and sanitation
  • A safe place to live
  • A Christian education.
  • A good start.

Givehigher provides a number of child sponsorship options with Christian organisations (with offices in Australia).

"Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it."
—Proverbs 22v6
