Sponsor a Child

Hi, I’m Jenifer and I’m 12 years old. My father works as a mason in the construction fields. My favourite subject at school is science and I love arts and crafts. My teacher says I have good manners and am well behaved. I used to find school hard but have improved a lot.

Your sponsorship will provide a child like Jenifer with opportunities for schooling, health care and offer her family micro-enterprise loans to build a better future.

Most children in our Indian child sponsorship program have either one parent or belong to families experiencing very difficult circumstances. They live in slum areas around the city and their parents may work in hazardous occupations such as in quarries. Sponsorship provides opportunities for schooling, health care and micro-enterprises.

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.
