ActionAid is one of the UK’s largest international development charities, helping poor people in over 35 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean. Child sponsorship is key to our work.
If we all sponsored a child in the developing world, imagine the difference we could make. The world’s poorest people would get a chance to create a self-reliant future. Poverty could be a thing of the past. Child sponsorship helps a child’s whole community by providing access to safe, clean water, healthcare, education and an escape from a life of hardship and disease. Sponsors will see how their money is working through regular updates from local fieldworkers and personal messages from the child they sponsor.
