What to expect when you sponsor a child
Where your sponsorship money goes
80% of your sponsorship money goes overseas to help your child and their community (20% is spent in the UK on public education and finding more sponsors). And in the country where your child lives, ActionAid works with their community to decide what the money should be spent on.

Not only does child sponsorship help children to grow up happy, healthy and protected, it also gives them the opportunity to act as representatives for their communities.
When children come together to write or draw messages for their sponsors, they meet in a space where they can eat, play and learn about their rights.
Here’s their first drawing for you as their sponsor.holding
