Child Empowerment

Since 1974, you’ve been helping us empower vulnerable children through sponsorship. Together, we’ve educated thousands of children and made a significant impact. THANK YOU!

No Child Left Behind

Sponsor a single child, or multiply your impact by supporting an entire group. Either way, your gift will ensure no children in our partner schools are forgotten.

Group Sponsorship

Group sponsorship embraces entire groups of children within high-risk communities to ensure that no one falls through the cracks. It gives all at-risk children in the community an equal chance to go to school and be empowered for the future.

How Does it Work?

Your gifts are pooled with that of other group sponsors so that together, you can make a big difference quickly. Because of this, there’s no monthly minimum. Some contribute $30, $60, or $90 a month, while some give more and others less. The children are grateful for any amount that suits your budget. You can empower a group in Bangladesh, Ghana, or Zambia (more to follow!)

Our Group Sponsorship Programs

Bangladesh Group Program

The Bangladesh Group Program ensures that every student has a place in a classroom with dedicated teachers, books, and effective learning tools.

Ghana Group Program

The Ghana Group Program ensures that children in impoverished districts get to attend school, where they receive a quality education, mentoring, and special development in peer support groups.

Zambia Group Program

The Zambia Group Program gives orphans and vulnerable children access to dedicated teachers, books, effective learning tools, health care, and balanced nutrition at the ZACTS School.

Individual Sponsorship

Individual sponsorship embraces vulnerable children within high-risks communities to support them through school. How this differs from group sponsorship is that it allows the sponsor to connect with one child and develop a personal relationship with them through letter writing.

How Does It Work?

Your gift of just $41 a month will empower a child in any of the following countries: Bangladesh, Colombia, DR Congo, Ghana, Kenya, Nepal, Uganda, and Zambia.
