Sponsor a child - help rebuild a broken life

These children are in real danger. 

Bitter and bloody conflicts around the world are driving children from their homes and leaving them injured, traumatised and in constant danger. 

Sponsoring a child for just £15 a month could provide: 

  • clean water and food
  • shelter to protect from cold and disease
  • sessions with a locally-trained counsellor
  • education at a local school

Please sponsor today

About ActionAid

The way ActionAid works is different. We’ve been helping children around the world for 40 years, and we’re rooted in communities.

That means our staff are local to your sponsored child – so we know the problems they face, and what they need. And we help them and the people who matter to them most – their family, friends and neighbours – to work their own way out of poverty.

This brings real change that lasts, meaning we achieve as much as possible with every pound you give us.

Where can I sponsor?

You can sponsor a child in a specific country. Children all over the world desperately need sponsorship, especially in Afghanistan, Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana, Guatemala, Liberia, Malawi, Myanmar, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, and The Gambia.

Or you can leave the choice to us. We can suggest a child for you to sponsor in the country that most needs your help.

What do I get?

When you sponsor a child with ActionAid, you’ll get a unique insight into their life.

We’ll send you:
- A photo of your child and their life story
- Two handwritten messages from them a year
- Two newsletters a year from staff in your child’s community
- Detailed updates showing exactly where your money goes.

Your one-to-one relationship with your sponsored child means you’ll see first hand how your donation helps.
