What is Child Sponsorship?

World Vision's Child Sponsorship programme changes the lives of thousands of children every year. Our vision of creating a better world for our children works on the simple yet powerful principle that the best way to change the life of a needy child is to change the world in which he/she lives! .

A contribution of Rs.800/- per month addresses issues that promote the overall development of the child. Sponsored children along with their community are helped through education, training and awareness programs, clean drinking water, agricultural assistance and health benefits.

Along with this, newer business opportunities are generated among poor families, so that someday, they can continue to provide for the coming generations, even after World Vision has left their area! Child Sponsorship is therefore a long-term commitment and its effects are sustainable and long lasting!

As a sponsor, you get the satisfaction of being a very important part of this whole new world! You can keep in touch with your child through letters and personal visits and become a part of your child's world!

James Vasanthan - Wold Vision Child Sponsor

"I believe that when a girl child receives education it benefits the society at large". World Vision inspires, motivates and most importantly reminds all of us of the needs around us. You will be amazed at the way in which your contribution helps an entire community. All of us are inclined towards the helping the poor but not everyone takes that one step to go forward and help. Here's where World Vision plays the most significant role in enabling us to channelize our support to those in need. But let us not stop with the giving, let us spread this good news and change the lives of these children
