The survival, development and future of any child depends on their community.
That’s why your sponsorship improves life for both your child and their whole community.
As the future of children is ultimately linked to the situation in their community, ChildFund Australia sponsorship contributions are pooled with funds from other sponsors to help benefit all children and families in the community. This includes enrolled children who are awaiting a sponsor.
Sponsorship contributions help provide education, healthcare, food, safe drinking water, vocational training and income generation skills and child protection services for the child, family and community. The exact blend of program work depends on the needs and context of each individual community, so some or all programs may be active in your sponsored child’s area at any one time.
Active community participation and empowerment is encouraged within ChildFund project areas. Whilst 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.
Your sponsorship combines with those of other sponsors in the same community so that all children benefit.

Education, healthcare, nutrition and child protection give your sponsored child a future where they will survive and thrive.
