This maximizes your impact, allowing you to develop a meaningful connection with a brave, determined child, while improving the lives of many.

When you choose to sponsor a child, you can form a life-long bond that inspires and transforms entire communities.

You're just moments away from a gift that can change a child's life forever.

My Name is Mekdelawit

I am a 16 year old girl from Ethiopia

Mekdelawit and family live in a community in central Ethiopia. Many people are very poor and earn income from subsistence businesses or low paying jobs like daily wage laborers. Generally, the area is considered a slum with no sewage or garbage disposal and little access to effective health care. Schools are often split into multiple shifts so that most children are able to attend. Food supplies are hardly substantial and most families live in rented shacks which are often unsanitary and poorly ventilated. Children need many of the basics, like vaccinations and clean water. The families are eager to improve their situation. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

My Name is Rogerio

I am a 16 year old boy from Timor-Leste

Rogerio and family live in a mountain community. The terrain is rugged. Poor roads and heavy rains during the rainy season make getting to and from school difficult for children. Families are large, often with 10 to 12 children. Most people work as farmers and grow food for their own consumption. Sometimes families can grow enough food to sell at the marketplace. Very few homes have electricity. Kerosene lamps are used to light homes at night. Safe drinking water is inaccessible. Primary schools are overcrowded, lack furniture, books, and sanitary waste facilities. High schools are located in outlying areas. Health clinics are not equipped to meet the needs of patients. The families are working hard to improve their lives. Your help is greatly appreciated.
