Child Sponsorship

  • Every child deserves a bright future
  • Do something truly

How it helps

When you sponsor a child through Save the Children, you and your family will learn about life in communities completely different to what we know here in Australia. Child Sponsorship is a fantastic way to introduce your children to some of the different hardships faced by kids around the world.

As a child sponsor, you will support programs that give children what they need to survive, while providing them with the ability to create a better future for themselves and their community.

Transforming lives together

To make the greatest impact possible, your contributions are combined with those of other sponsors. Together, you invest in community-based programs designed to bring about sustainable improvements in child survival, well-being and development. This helps us achieve lasting positive outcomes for large numbers of children.

Empowering the next generation

Child sponsors help build the skills of children, families and community leaders to create lasting change for future generations. With your support, Save the Children's team of experts assist your sponsored child's community to overcome poverty and ensure the rights of children are met.

We work with a community until they are able to continue to improve their own lives. On average, this happens after a period of eight to 10 years.

With your support and encouragement, your sponsored child and their community will be ready to progress without us and inspire others just as you have them.
