Sponsor a child in the DRC

Start a life-changing journey today.


For more than 60 years, Canadians have supported families and whole communities in an incredible journey of empowerment. Today, child sponsorship continues to break cycles of poverty and create new paths to health, education and higher incomes.

Be part of the movement – sponsor a child today! .

Here’s how:
Your donations are pooled with those of other sponsors to help all children in a region – not just those who have sponsors. Thanks to the monthly funding, communities can invest in sustainable long-term development, in areas such as food, water, health care, education and income generation.

Three program phases

BUILD THE FOUNDATION.  In early days, we partner with community members to understand their needs, goals and resources. We work together to find long-term solutions to challenges.
EVALUATE AND GROW. As time passes, we work with the community to adjust plans and stay focused on goals. Community members increasingly take ownership for their own development.
ENHANCE SUSTAINABILITY.  As the Canadian sponsor-local community partnership matures, we work with local leaders and families to ensure that improvements for children continue over the long-term.
