About this site...
The aim of this site is to raise awareness of children's lives in Africa and
to explore how to sponsor a child and make a meaningful difference to young
lives by lifting them out of poverty when becoming a sponsor. We have a
focus on "on the ground" organizations and sponsor programs.
One of the most incredible
things when you sponsor a child in Africa is the real
and meaningful difference it makes practically overnight
because the children are, in general, wholeheartedly
appreciative that you have come into their lives and
opened doors for them such as giving them an education
that will help them make the most of their own future. They may never meet you,
though they could, but they know in their hearts you are
there for them helping them to secure a better future.

Many children in Africa are abandoned through poverty, war and disease including
AIDs/HIV. In the hope of a better life many make their way to urban areas hoping to find food, somewhere to live and even work. But it doesn't end up that way for most.
Many of them find themselves living on the streets
begging and eating often contaminated food to get by. Every years dozens of children
in Africa die of cold, poisoning or injuries sustained trying to survive.
We highlight many of these child sponsor programs and
