We believe that every child has the right to an education. Sadly, in many homes in Zambia there is simply no money spare for fees, uniforms or equipment so many children are forced to drop out of school. This is particularly true for orphans and vulnerable children, which is why supporting them to complete their schooling is at the heart of our work. You can help us give children a brighter future and join the fight against child poverty by becoming a child sponsor.
What difference can child sponsorship make?
Child sponsorship can make a huge difference to a child’s education and future. Just £15 a month is enough to cover all of the essentials to help a child access education, as well as pastoral support to help them towards a safer and more secure future. £15 a month covers:
– School fees
– Essential items such as uniform, books and equipment
– Pastoral support such as bereavement counselling and health education
Will I hear from the child I sponsor?
After you have signed up to sponsor a child you will receive a profile and photo of the child you are sponsoring. You’ll also be given annual updates on the child’s progress, so you can see for yourself how your support is helping them to grow and develop. You are also welcome to send letters or cards to the child you sponsor. Tokens like these mean a lot and your words of support can help inspire a child to fulfill their potential.
