We hear of children and families around the world living in oppressive poverty. I experienced it firsthand. Growing up in India, my younger sister and I lived with our parents in a sparse 12 x 6-foot rented room. Our small radio was our one comforting possession that connected us to a world of music and joy.
When my parents learned about OneChild, our lives did an about-face. OneChild covered the costs of my schoolbooks, school uniform and shoes. OneChild also provided nourishing meals and medical checkups. But most of all, they encouraged me in drawing closer to the heart of God. My OneChild school was a safe place and kept me from being on the streets. I honestly don’t know if I’d even be alive right now if OneChild hadn’t intervened in my life and the life of my family.
Child Champions around the world help more than 40,000 children living in dire need, just like me. The couple who sponsored me believed in me and helped foster my passion for honoring God through music. Today, I manage the careers of music artists, and I am extremely grateful that OneChild taught me to lead with integrity and hope.
I wholeheartedly believe in giving back. My sister was also sponsored by OneChild and is now a teacher in India. I am now able to help provide for my parents. My son will now have a life I never dreamed possible. This is why I invite you to prayerfully consider sponsoring a child today.
By sponsoring a child, you don’t simply change the life of a single child. You will sponsor a generation. You will truly change countless lives for eternity. I am living proof of this.

Children’s Best Hope: A Strong Church
Our vision for the church is global: The body of Christ growing, strong, united. If the church is strong in a poverty-stricken community, we know that we can effectively help the children living there. A strong local church partner is one of our prerequisites for ministry. And that ministry isn’t possible without the support of the church in the U.S.
We’re building a
community of hope.
OneChild sponsors provide encouragement, love and support to children living in poverty. And they empower an entire community of caring individuals who walk alongside those children as they grow. Through that community, sponsorship provides the resources and opportunities children need to rise above their circumstances and reach their potential in Christ. In fact, recent research demonstrates that child sponsorship is one of the most effective ways to combat global poverty. There’s real power in one person reaching out to one child through community—power that changes both lives!
Sponsorship with OneChild helps children grow in…
Your child has the opportunity to learn about God and His purpose for their life.
Your child gets help with their studies and is taught problem-solving, leadership, literacy, and life skills.
Your child is provided nutritious food and supplements and has access to medical check-ups and immunizations to fight common diseases.
Your child is encouraged to socialize with others and receives instruction in sports, music, and drama.
OneChild sponsors empower the loving community that surrounds each child in our care. You can provide education, medical care, spiritual support, and hope to a child in desperate need.
We are accountable to the children we serve AND to our donors.
Our accountability to our donors is one of our highest priorities. Our goal is to use the funds entrusted to us as wise stewards. To do this requires continued monitoring of our fund distribution. OneChild is also a member in good standing with the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA)
