We want to tell you about an organization called OneChild. OneChild is a Christian child development nonprofit that works to bring hope, truth, life, love and mercy to almost 40,000 children living in poverty all over the world through child sponsorship. Through sponsorship, a child in need will receive nutritional support, medical aid, educational assistance, and mostly importantly, an opportunity to learn about God’s great love for them!
We live in a world that needs creative solutions to poverty and is desperately seeking for the Lord’s hope and light to come into its darkest places. And so many of these impoverished children are living in the midst of hopelessness, worry, and devastating circumstances. By receiving a sponsor, not only will they have the means to survive, but they will learn that their name is known by someone who cares for them. And isn’t that what we all truly desire? To know that we are seen, heard, and loved.
We encourage you to prayerfully consider joining our global community on this journey to change the world we are living in. While we cannot change the whole world on our own, we can change the world for one child. And when we all join our strengths and resources together, our shared purpose will make a huge difference. Sponsor a child today, and know that your generosity will have eternal impact.
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 share the Gospel with children and their families. 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 hope, love and support to children living in poverty. And they empower an entire global community of caring individuals who walk alongside those children as they grow. Through that global community, sponsorship provides the resources and opportunities children in hard places 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!

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.
