Sponsorship Breaks the Cycle of Poverty
The OneChild community works in 14 poverty-stricken countries. Over 40 years of ministry, OneChild has served more than 40,000 children.
Research indicates that one-to-one child sponsorship is one of the most effective ways to combat global poverty. Sponsorship makes it possible for children to stay in their homes, receive education and support, and become leaders within their communities. Your monthly financial support empowers our staff in the field to equip each child to become healthy, self-sufficient adults.
Where We Work
Hope Centers: A Safe Place to Grow
Through your financial support, your sponsored child is able to attend one of our Hope Centers where he or she gains access to a safe space for learning, regular nutritious meals, medical care, community, and space for play. All this is provided by caring staff and volunteers.
About Hope Centers
Child Champions: Loving Adults
Because our staff and volunteers live in the communities where they serve and spend time ministering to children in a Hope Center every day, they begin to understand the children’s unique needs and dreams and can provide better care.
The same principle is true for our sponsors. As you communicate with your sponsored child, you will get to know him or her. Our goal is that every adult in our community can care for and encourage our children effectively because each child is known.
Who We Are
“It’s beautiful how God can give us this love like these kids are our own. Sometimes, I forget that they speak a different language and find myself about to buy them small books written in English. It’s amazing how this communication barrier isn’t a barrier at all when it comes to love. I am so impressed with OneChild; we are so happy to be part of such an important mission.”
Child Development: A Holistic Approach
As a sponsor, over the years you get to build a meaningful relationship with a child. The letters you write, prayers you pray, and support you provide speak volumes — that he or she is seen, known, protected, and championed.
Your monthly gift goes directly toward your sponsored child’s growth in four different areas.
- Health – providing children with nutritious food, supplements and medical care
- Education – schooling or tutoring to help children succeed in their education
- Faith – encouraging children in their faith
- Community – creating opportunities for socialization, play and exploration
