Sponsor a Child

Every child is special—uniquely made by God.

We aspire to love each child as God does, and help them receive: good health, good skills, good relationships—and the opportunity to hear the Good News.

How it Works

Tearfund partners with Compassion International to offer children in need of a hope more powerful than poverty. There’s nothing better than knowing you’re making a real difference in the life of a child.

Here’s how:

STEP 1 Choose a child

Choose the child you’d like to connect with and sponsor them. They’ll attend a programme run by the local church to learn, grow, play and develop.

Andrea and Nova's story

Watch the full story


What started as a sponsorship journey between Andrea and Nova, grew into a deep friendship – across oceans, across borders, across barriers.  

You and your family can start on a life-changing journey to transform another family’s life across the world and offer them a hope more powerful than poverty. 

A commitment of $56 a month connects a child to their local church family, gives them an education, access to a doctor and a safe place to play. It gives them a chance at a better childhood. 

When you sponsor a child, you also build a relationship with the whole family by writing and receiving letters of hope and encouragement.
