More than just a name.

Child sponsorship is not about setting up an auto-debit every month; it is about building and sharing a relationship. The relationship between you and your sponsored child is a personal and beautiful one that will enrich both lives. And it’s the little things that matter the most in a relationship, like words of encouragement and tokens of love.

Every letter to your child goes a long way.
