Child sponsorship works.

Child sponsorship, through World Hope International, utilizes multiple program areas to complement one another and act as a comprehensive response to poverty. The encouragement of a sponsor affirms that each child has been created in the image of God, has been named, and has a story worthy of being heard!

The best part? Child sponsorship works! According to a study published in the Journal of Political Economy, sponsored children are more likely to:

  • STAY IN SCHOOL: Sponsored children are up to 40% more likely to finish secondary school and up to 80% more likely to graduate college.
  • FIND STABLE EMPLOYMENT: Sponsored children are up to 18% more likely to find jobs and lift themselves – and their families – out of desperate cycles of violence, disease and poverty.
  • BECOME COMMUNITY & CHURCH LEADERS: Children lifted from poverty by the generosity of sponsors are up to 70% more likely to become leaders in their churches and communities.

How it works.

Country-specific strategies

To maximize the impact of your investment as a child sponsor, World Hope adapts our solutions to poverty, suffering, and injustice to each country or region where we work.

Community partnerships

World Hope addresses the holistic needs of children and their communities. We measure our success not only by whether the child is attending school, but our overall impact on the region’s food security, access to clean water, decrease in sickness, improvements in teacher training and the availability of school supplies.

Personal relationships

We encourage sponsors to write their sponsored children regularly, whether it’s to share their interests, encourage their children to work hard in school, or to share a scripture verse that ignites spiritual growth. And, that encouragement can make all the difference!
