Our child sponsorship programme aims to bring the hope of the Gospel, practical help and education to a vulnerable and needy child.
Can you sponsor Marina in Albania?Sponsor Marina
Marina lives in the deprived village of Kloce with her parents who suffer with physical and mental health problems. The village has poor infrastructure and hygiene, open sewer channels and a lack of education. Sponsoring Marina will provide her with essentials and a chance to learn.
Can you sponsor Sweety in India?Sponsor Sweety
Sweety lives on a tea plantation in the Himalayas where her father is a daily labourer. Education is not valued in Sweety’s community, which is full of gambling and alcoholics. She wants to learn, but her father doesn’t earn enough to provide for her family’s needs or school fees.
What is ChildAid?
ChildAid works through a number of unique partners including Christian schools and orphanages, to help children learn to read, feed them nourishing meals, provide clothing, tuition, uniforms, school supplies, and above all else, offer a child the opportunity to hear about a new life in Jesus. Sponsorship is available to children on the basis of need, regardless of age, faith, gender or ability. ChildAid sponsors meet the physical and spiritual needs of children through our ministry partners, helping them achieve their God-given potential.
How much per month does it cost to sponsor a child?
The cost per child is £20 per month, payable through direct debit, cheque or credit card.
Where does the money go?
Sponsorship money is sent to the ministry and is used for the benefit of the children, to ensure the money is not misused.
How long is my commitment?
You are free to end your sponsorship at any time by letting us know, and in those cases the child is sponsored from the general fund until a new sponsor is found for them.
Can I send gifts/visit my sponsored child?
We welcome cash gifts for Children at Christmas or Birthdays, which we recommend be no more than £20 per child. WorldShare is not able to arrange trips for you, although if you travel to a location where your child lives we will ask our partners to arrange a meeting for you.
What contact can I have with my sponsored child?
We aim to provide at least two letters per year from your child, one of which will be a Christmas greeting. You can write to your child at anytime (not including personal details.)
"The experience I’ve had as a child sponsor has been amazing and without WorldShare it wouldn’t have happened. The relationship we’ve got is really lovely and I’m moved by the letters and beautiful cards she has sent me over the years. It’s amazing to know that you’re making a difference to their whole future."
