Sponsor a child | ActionAid UK

For just 65p a day, your sponsorship with ActionAid UK will help a child in one of the poorest countries in the world get access to nutritious food, clean water, health care and education. You could help make sure a girl like Lae Yi, from Myanmar, grows up safe and happy.

All children have hopes and dreams, but poverty and injustice can hold them back. They might face violence, miss out on an education, or be prevented from claiming their rights. But it doesn’t have to be this way. 

By sponsoring a child, you’ll help us work with local communities to overcome these injustices and unlock a child’s potential. Your support will mean that children in some of the poorest parts of the world can look forward to a brighter future. So the hopes and dreams of girls like Lae Yi, might one day become a reality.

Sponsor a child in Nepal

Three-year-old Chandani lives in south-eastern Nepal – she is an only child.

Your sponsorship will support not just Chandani but her whole community. It will help to fund whatever they need the most – whether it’s training teachers, installing water pumps or providing psychosocial support to children affected by the earthquake in 2015.

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.

You can be sure we’ll achieve as much as possible with every pound you give us. And you’ll be able to see the difference you’re making through regular updates we’ll send on how your money’s being spent.

“It’s amazing to see what a difference such a small amount of money a month can make to a whole community.”
