Help a child’s development and give them a better start in life
Child sponsorship is one of the best ways to help development overseas. Research by Dr Bruce Wydick has discovered that “of all the long-term development interventions, child sponsorship receives the highest rating”. Of course other interventions such as providing clean water also receive a high rating, but child sponsorship was given the highest score of all the long term strategies.
It costs just £21 a month to sponsor a child and the organisation Compassion makes it simple to read about a child and then select who you want to sponsor.
Your sponsorship does not just involve money. You will exchange letters, photos and encouragement with the child. You will also be helping to provide food and clean water, medical care, educational opportunities and life-skills.
When you sponsor a child you will be sent their photo along with their personal story. For children to find out they have been sponsored is an amazing feeling. They realise that someone cares for them. Their life will be changed for the better, as will yours.
Compassion is a leading child development charity serving more than a million children in 26 of the world’s poorest countries. It is a Christian organisation that helps children from all faith backgrounds. To find out more, visit www.compassionuk.org.
