How Sponsorship helps Children

Pie Chart - 81c in every dollar goes directly to helping children in poverty
81c in every dollar goes directly to helping children in poverty

ChildFund Australia works in partnership with children and their communities to create lasting and meaningful change by supporting long-term community development and promoting children's rights.


Sponsorship contributions help provide food, healthcare, safe drinking water, education and income generation skills for the child, family and community.

Active community participation and empowerment is encouraged within ChildFund project areas. Although children are at the centre of the locally developed initiatives, the emphasis is on encouraging self-help by providing families and communities with the means to reshape their future.

Communicating with your child

"I want to thank my sponsor for all the greetings cards and letters she has sent me. I have learned new things about her family and about the animals there."

Tharun, age 10, Sri Lanka

Child sponsorship is a wonderful opportunity to develop a new friendship across the globe. You can begin to get to know your sponsored child, learn more about each other and follow their progress.

Communicating is fun and enjoyable for both of you. It will be a childhood experience they will always cherish. But don’t just take it from us, see what children have to say!

To get started, we will send you a colourful postcard to introduce yourself. Shortly after, we’ll send you a fun activity for your sponsored child, so keep an eye on the post.

Visiting your Sponsor Child

“It has just been the most incredible day, to meet this child who we have only seen in pictures, to interact with Hamad, to see the area where he lives and meet his family."
ChildFund Ambassador, Julie Goodwin

Many sponsors describe visiting their sponsored child and their community as one of the most enriching and memorable experiences of their life. It also provides you with the unique opportunity to see first-hand the enormous difference that your sponsorship contributions are making in your sponsored child’s community.

ChildFund Australia can arrange for you to meet your sponsored child and family in their village. Please email Supporter Relations at or call on 1800 023 600 at least three months ahead of your planned departure date so arrangements can be made.
