Children in rural African village


and give them hope for a better future

Many living in poverty are denied an education simply because they cannot afford the basic materials required to attend school. By sponsoring a child, you will give them hope of a better future.

“I thank God for this golden chance that I have got in getting a sponsor. When we received the news I was very happy I cried with excitement. Thank you so much because I have gained hope that I had lost. The fact is that I had no plan for my future. I now want to become a nurse when I leave school.”

We work hard to find sponsors like yourself, who are willing to give a child HOPE for a better future.


You Sponsor your child on a one to one basis. Many of our supporters sponsor more than one child.

Each new sponsor is an answer to the prayers of a child in need. Sponsors can encourage their child throughout their schooling by exchanging letters (which our partners translate) and maybe even small gifts if you choose to.  All gifts and correspondence (email or physical) goes through the CHI office for safeguarding purposes.

Sponsoring gives regular contact with the church, helps children stay in school, complete their education and gives them a route into employment or even start their own business, helping to break the cycle of poverty. More importantly it gives the opportunity for them to develop faith in Jesus as their Lord and Saviour.
