Child Sponsorship

Make a difference in a child’s life

Sponsorship pays for uniforms, food and educational materials.  This is an amazing opportunity to transform a life.

Help us eliminate malnutrition

Our high impact feeding program.  This program feeds starving children around the world with life-sustaining food.

COmmunity ProjectS

Changing Lives and Communities

Engage with community changing projects with full or shared sponsorship available for each project.

Since 1991, we’ve been dedicated to working with the world’s most vulnerable people regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender.


Children sponsored

Children need sponsors

We exist for ‘Practical Mission’ – we help the poor, the sick and those in need of education, then after them having experienced God’s love for them, we give them the opportunity to hear the good news of Jesus and to know Him more.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or would like to chat about us helping you achieve your mission objectives.

We currently have over 1000 children awaiting sponsorship.

How would it feel if you knew you could make a real difference in someone’s life today?

Sponsor a child now

Phanice lived in rural Soy, in north west Kenya. Her father, a single parent, was a labourer and barely had enough money to feed his two children. He certainly couldn’t afford to send both of them to school.

A man in the village offered to take Phanice as a bride, reducing the burden on her family, and this looked set to be her fate until World In Need intervened.

We found sponsors for Phanice, which enabled her to stay with her family, enjoy her childhood and go to school. There, she quickly proved to be an exceptional student, coming top, not only of her class and school, but of all students in her region – some ten thousand children!

She won a scholarship to a prestigious secondary school in Nairobi, from where entry to university is guaranteed. It’s her ambition to become a doctor.

There are still too many children like Phanice used to be. Children such as 10 year old Sharon. Sharon’s father died, leaving her mother to bring up five children. It is a struggle, and school costs are a burden. If Sharon is to get the education she deserves, she needs a sponsor willing to give £22 a month. Could that be you?

It can start today. Just fill in the form below, and we’ll help you change a life.

World In Need retains just 10% of all donations for administration costs. 90% is sent to the partner organisation in each country to support the sponsored child.
