Sponsor a Child
Democratic Republic of Congo

Hi, I’m Nzabante and I’m 13 years old. I’m the youngest of 6 kids and want to be a teacher one day. My mum has been ill since 2011 and unable to work. My dad works at the airport as a luggage carrier but struggles to provide for the whole family. We usually eat once a day so our food can last longer.

Your sponsorship will provide a child like Nzabante food, education and healthcare.

Many of the children in our child sponsorship program in the Democratic Republic of Congo have been impacted by HIV/AIDS. The children may be orphaned or living with a parent who is suffering from the disease. Some may live with extended family or may be HIV positive themselves. Sponsorship provides opportunities to meet their basic needs in health care, education and counselling.

How Sponsorship Works

Your monthly support of $49 will help fund projects specific to the needs
of the child’s community, including things such as quality education, food
and nutrition and health. It may also fund projects specific to the needs of the
child’s community such as schools or hospitals.

When you support our child sponsorship program for teenage mothers,
your monthly gift of $166 is directed towards a pregnancy crisis centre
which offers temporary shelter and pre-and post-natal care for pregnant teenagers.
It also runs vocational skills training to provide the girls with a means
to support themselves and their babies after they leave the centre.

Approximately 75% of funds raised go to partner programs that directly benefit vulnerable children and their communities. This includes the provision expertise to ensure that the funds are providing maximum benefits to their intended beneficiaries. 

We encourage our sponsors to set up automatic credit card or bank account deductions, as they are easy and reliable. You can also pay by cheque or credit card. 

Yes, the children love to hear from their sponsors in Australia because it reminds them that someone loves and cares for them. You can write using the blank letter template included with each letter from your sponsor child, or alternatively you can forward the text of your letter to sponsorships@worldshare.org.au.
