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 Rosa in Chiquimula, Guatemala?Sponsor Rosa
Rosa is 9 years old and lives in the community of Chiquimula, which is part of the ‘dry corridor’ of Guatemala - an isolated area that is in drought for most of the year. Rosa’s favourite colour is blue, her favourite subject is art and she loves to spend time playing with her siblings. Potter’s House have already provided her family with a cooking stove. Sponsoring Rosa will help her have good access to both education and clean water & sanitation facilities.

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.)
