It takes a village to ensure that a child can grow up safely, securely, and with access to education and hope for opportunities in the future. It takes their family, teachers, leaders, and other community members – and now, we are inviting others to be part of the village, too.
World Hope’s Child Sponsorship program holistically and uniquely addresses the barriers children face in accessing education. Join in the journey with these children and their communities by sponsoring a child today and help open the doors for them to a life of opportunity, dignity, and hope!
Sponsor a Child
- Known – When a child receives their first letter from you, they believe someone cares about their story.
- Loved – Through sponsorship, God’s love pours out of you–right into that child–in the form of encouragement, prayers, and opportunity.
- Launched – With education, confidence, and hope for their future, you have launched a child on a journey to live to their fullest, God-given potential.
Special Needs Child
- A Caseworker – A highly qualified, compassionate caseworker is assigned to your sponsored child and his or her family. Hope for the future starts here!
- A Plan – A plan is created for each child including therapy needs, family and community training, and specialized equipment.
- A Future – With therapy, confidence, and a restored sense of value, you have launched this child on a journey to live to their fullest, God-given potential.
World Hope’s child sponsorship program is set up to remove barriers to education for children.
Access to Education
At WHI, sponsorships not only cover costs like tuition, uniforms, books, but are also used to address other barriers children often face in pursuit of an education. That’s why, unique to the communities, sponsorship funds may also go to ensuring quality teaching, safe trips to and from schools, and best practices for hygiene and health.
Because World Hope partners with schools and villages to implement its child sponsorship program, student clubs, retreats, camps, and special activities may also be established through the funding that comes in. This can then provide a holistic educational experience that enhances children’s emotional, social, spiritual, and leadership development; equips them with valuable skills; and empowers them to become leaders in their communities and countries.
Enable the Children
All children deserve a hopeful future and a life of dignity and opportunity, but children living with special needs face even more barriers along the way. That’s why, in partnership with our Enable the Children program, World Hope also offers specialized Child Sponsorship opportunities that provide children living with disabilities and/or special needs a qualified, compassionate caseworker, and an individualized plan that includes any therapy needs, training, or specialized equipment.
Child Sponsorship with WHI
World Hope International’s Child Sponsorship program works around the world to remove barriers to education and is unique to the communities where it is implemented. The sponsorship takes place through partnering with schools and the villages those schools are connected to.
Funding from child sponsorships covers costs such as tuition, uniforms, and books, but is also used in other ways to ensure children can access education. That’s why, in the Philippines, some child sponsorship funds were used to build a community bridge. The children in this village had to cross a river every day to and from school and in order to cross it, they had to wade through with their books and clothes held over their heads, at risk of drowning, being swept away, or losing their books. Similarly, in Sierra Leone, funding from the child sponsorship program is often used to support the professional development and certification process for teachers at partner schools.
