YOUR CHILD SPONSORSHIP IN ACTION

Being a child sponsor is such a rewarding experience.

ChildFund sponsor Jessie shares her sponsorship journey in this video - she tells us why she chose to sponsor, the difference it’s made for their sponsored child and what it has meant for her family.

As a sponsor you get:

  • Annual progress reports and photos of your child, and updates about their community
  • Personalised birthday and Christmas cards to send your sponsored child
  • A magnetic photo frame - give your sponsored child’s photo pride of place on the fridge!
  • A chance to share letters and even visit.

Child Sponsorship provides children with the best possible start in life, and a future of opportunities.

What other kiwi sponsors are saying:

“Sponsoring the girls has been a totally rewarding experience so far, and now that we’ve all met, I know our relationship will be at a whole new level. If I am talking with others about sponsoring a child, my message is simple: do it.”

Rachel Perrett and family on meeting sponsored child Lillian

“I think it’s easy to be cynical; you read stories about how much money doesn’t make it where it’s really needed, or you wonder how much help you, as just one person, can really be. Visiting Le has really cemented for us that child sponsorship does work. We’re proud that we’re helping Le’s community to help themselves, and we’re proud that we’ve shown our children the importance of caring about and helping others.”

Allocation of Child Sponsorship Donations

80% Remitted Overseas

20% Retained in NZ

80% of your Child Sponsorship donation (not including ChildFund’s Future Fund contribution) is remitted overseas.

The $5 ChildFund Future Fund helps ensure the consistent delivery of our quality programmes to children, develop additional programmes, and find more child sponsors for children in need.

SEE THE DIFFERENCE YOU ARE MAKING

ChildFund works toward one simple outcome: leaving families in a situation where they are independent and self-reliant.

Implementing a plan like this relies on strong relationships with families and communities. So ChildFund New Zealand has formed special relationships with just five main ‘partner’ countries. You can sponsor a child in any of these five countries. They are Kenya, Zambia, Timor-Leste, Sri Lanka and Vietnam.

Sponsor A Child Today!

Life is a daily struggle for many children living in extreme poverty. You can ease the struggles of one child through sponsorship.

But not just one child. By sponsoring you'll help some of the poorest children in the world. You will help give children access to clean water, good nutrition, an education and more.

Your regular gift will help your sponsored child and family grow strong and resilient.

Your contribution as a child sponsor can change the lives of entire communities. Sponsorship enables ChildFund to partner with communities to help families break free from poverty.

ChildFund works with children at every stage of their lives from pre-birth to young adult. Babies and under-fives need quality nutrition and healthcare to ensure they develop well mentally and physically. Children aged 5 to 14 years need a quality education and the opportunity to learn and play. Youth need life skills, confidence and have opportunities to become happy and productive citizens.

Every parent wants a better life for their children. With your support ChildFund helps parents, teachers and communities build safe environments for children to grow and learn.

Sponsorship isn’t a handout, it’s a hand up. ChildFund works to build strong sustainable communities so that in time they no longer need our help. Sponsorship provides for the essential needs of children and along with our other programmes is part of a wider effort to help communities lift themselves out of poverty.
