In addition to our child sponsorship programme you can also choose to sponsor or donate to other aspects of our work.
Sponsor a child’s place at school
This is similar to our child sponsorship but rather than focus on a particular child it focuses on providing a place at one of our partner schools. This has advantages for some of our partners, eg in Kampala families can often be transient and this means if they move to another area it is much easier to reassign sponsorship money to a new child so the money is used more productively.
At £15 per month it costs the same as our normal child sponsorship and provides for the same level of care. If you choose this option we will keep you updated with information about the child who currently occupies this school place and will notify you when they change. Sponsor a child’s place at school now.
Sponsor a feeding programme
Many of the poorest children in the areas of East Africa and the Philippines are malnourished with different degrees of starvation. With our feeding programme we promise to provide them with one cooked meal everyday that will provide the basic energy and nutrients they need to survive. One plate of rice a day can save a life. You can give life to that child for as little as 30p per day or £10 per month. Sponsor a Feeding Programme now.
Sponsor a place at an Indian refuge
In India women from the lowest caste of society have very few opportunities in life. With little or no education or prospects of a future they can be forced into prostitution. In Pradesh province we work with our partners to provide a refuge for those women who desperately want to escape the grip of prostitution but are unable to do so.
For £30 per month you can sponsor a place at this refuge centre that provides accommodation, food and education for these women. We will not be able to provide the details of the people who take up your sponsored place but we will keep you regularly updated with news from the refuge centre and how it is helping to transform the lives of the women in the area. Sponsor a Women’s Refuge place now.
Make a donation to a school
In East Africa the state pays for only the most basic of schooling for primary age children. Many of these schools lack basic infrastructure and resources. Classrooms are bare wooden huts, kitchens and toilets are outside and there is often no electricity or running water. You can make a donation to one of our partner schools to improve the infrastructure which will benefit hundreds of children now and into the future. Examples of what your donation could provide are:
- £100 would fully equip a school kitchen to provide meals for the pupils
- £500 would fully equip a school classroom with resources
- £1,000 would build a school kitchen or latrines
- £7,000 would pay to connect Sister Delores School to the electricity grid
