You can change a child's life for the better; from hopelessness and hunger to joy and wellbeing. With your help, a child can discover Jesus' love for them and realise their potential, becoming leaders and creating lasting change in their families and communities. With your help they can experience a hope more powerful than poverty.

Tearfund partners with Compassion International, whose child sponsorship programme connects children to their local church family, and gives them an education, access to a doctor and safe places to play. You can read more about how Child Sponsorship works here.
