Sponsor a child

You can change a child's life 

Sponsor a Child Today

WE FULLY RESPECT EACH CHILD’S RIGHT TO PRIVACY. THEREFORE, WE DO NOT SHARE A CHILD’S PHOTO, NAME OR PERSONAL INFORMATION UNTIL YOU BECOME THEIR SPONSOR.
 
You can transform a child’s life—today and into their future. Join more than 3,500 people in the United States who sponsor a child with SOS Children’s Villages.
WHAT IS CHILD SPONSORSHIP?

You have the opportunity to support an individual child’s essential needs and education, and ensure that they grow up with a loving family at SOS Children’s Villages.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

It only costs about a dollar per day—$35 per month—to sponsor a child and help them reach their full potential. Your contribution is truly life-changing for a child.

WHY SPONSOR A CHILD?

With more than 70 years of experience, we are the world’s largest nongovernmental organization dedicated to the care of orphaned, abandoned and vulnerable children.

Chris and Tom, child sponsors since 1981

“We started our sponsorship…when our own first child was born. We felt so blessed to have a healthy child, ready to grow up in a loving and caring home, that we wanted to help give at least one less fortunate child in the world the same chance through SOS Children’s Villages.”
