Support a Group of Children

No Child Left Behind

Multiply your impact by supporting an entire group of children. This ensures that no vulnerable children in our partner schools are forgotten.

Background

Since 1974, you’ve been helping us empower vulnerable children through individual child sponsorship. Together, we’ve educated thousands of children and made a significant impact. This program has had a long-reaching impact that goes beyond a single life.

Then in 2020, Covid-19 hit and everything changed. Lockdowns, food shortages, and hyper-inflation have been disproportionately hard on people living in poverty. These conditions made us wonder: How can we empower more children?

Our answer: Supporting entire groups of children to attend school, leaving no vulnerable child left unsponsored.

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 donors 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.
