Our Vision

ChildFund International is a nonprofit organization working toward a world where every child is free to live at their fullest potential, no matter where they’re from or what challenges they face.

None of us chooses where we are born.

None of us chooses to be born in extreme poverty — including the nearly 400 million of the world’s children who live in the world’s poorest places, where they’re deprived of their basic rights and necessities, excluded from opportunity and vulnerable to harm.

400 million is an awfully big number, too big to tackle. No one person can save that many.

But what if you could help one child?

What if you could help one child save herself?

Through child sponsorship, you can.

Our Mission

HELP children living in poverty to have the capacity to improve their lives and the opportunity to bring lasting change to their communities.

PROMOTE societies that value, protect and advance the well-being and rights of children.

ENRICH supporters’ lives through their support of our cause.

Our Impact

Why Child Sponsorship with ChildFund?

Every child is a world of possibilities, no matter where they’re born. This includes you — just as it includes every child growing up in extreme poverty.

Why sponsor a child with ChildFund International? Because you can connect with a child living in one of the world’s poorest places and help expand all of their possibilities that poverty would diminish.

Because your friendship and encouragement help them believe in their potential and inspire them to live it fully, every day.

Because your financial contribution joins with gifts from other caring ChildFund sponsors to help improve life right in the community where your sponsored child lives.

Because your emotional and financial support add up to a connection greater than its parts.

Because your sponsored child will change your life and make your world bigger.

Because every child matters.
