Gift a Sponsorship

Sponsoring a child, an educational and helpful gift

Did you know that…. £1 billion worth of toys are unused after Christmas in the UK?

Sponsor a child as a family! Give the chance to a child to go to school rather than working in the fields or on the dumpsite. 

  • Sponsoring a child is an educational and long-lasting gift.
  • It’s a gift that cannot be consumed but helps in the long term.
  • It’s a way to raise awareness of how lucky we are to have access to quality education.
