Sponsor a Child in Hard Places

What is Child Sponsorship?

Child sponsorship is a unique way we, as a global community, help boys and girls living in hard places. At our Hope Centers around the world, Child Champions provide children with food, education and vital care so they can become healthy, self-sufficient adults.

While poverty causes despair, your sponsorship of only $39 a month through OneChild brings hope to a boy or girl living in a hard place – great hope.

Why Sponsor with OneChild?

OneChild believes in community – a global community of people giving of ourselves so children in hard places can thrive. We believe every sponsor, staff member and volunteer in the US and around the world is a Child Champion, and each one has a vital role to play in bringing hope to children. We believe that we are one body, and each of us is needed to end poverty.

OneChild will not let fear get in the way of serving our world’s most desperate communities. There is no place too difficult. We have made our way into the hardest of the hard places because every child is worth fighting for.

OneChild is a community that listens. We believe local leaders have the best understanding of how to help children in the context of their communities. And we have a program of systematic listening so children can tell us how to most effectively tailor our programs to meet their needs.

OneChild takes the wise stewardship of funds entrusted to us seriously. We are a member in good standing with the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA).

OneChild takes child protection seriously, using best practices of training and monitoring to keep the children in our program safe.

Child Sponsorship is Life Changing

There are many ways to help children in hard places, so why sponsor a child? Hear directly from some in our global community who have had life-changing experiences through the OneChild child sponsorship program:

“I tell the kids, ‘Today you are one of the leaders here in the center, but tomorrow, you will be a leader of much greater things as long as you stay close to God.’”
-Kenya, Child Champion in Honduras

“OneChild gives me food, good clothes to wear and they help me in school. When I am at the Hope Center I learn more about God, that He loves me and that He has a special purpose for my life.”
–Lionnel, Sponsored Child

The sponsorship journey can be just as transformative for you as for the child you sponsor. Through personal, one-to-one letters you will get to know your sponsored child and watch as he or she grows up. This relationship brings you close to the heart of your child and lets you experience real life in another part of the world.

Child sponsorship is truly one of the most rewarding decisions you will ever make. Join the OneChild community by sponsoring a child today.
