How do you address child poverty in a country as vast as India? Child sponsorship does it one child and one community at a time. Your monthly support begins a personal relationship with your sponsored child. But she or he is also a bridge to the many other children in the community who benefit from the programs you support, whether that’s improved education, access to clean water or the protection of child rights.
Together, we're making real change in the lives of children, families and communities. Just some of what was achieved with Canadian support in 2016:
Boys and girls are safe and valued, well cared-for by their families and participating in their communities as agents of transformation.
Children and families are well nourished, protected from infection and disease and have access to essential health services.
Children learn and develop their talents, young people are equipped for the future and families support children's education.
Adults and youth acquire knowledge and skills, and gain access to resources, to help them increase their family income.
