Child Sponsorship

“A hundred years from now it will not matter
what my bank account was,
the sort of house I lived in,
or the kind of car I drove—
but the world may be different
because I was important in the life of a child.”
Forest E. Witcraft

Do you want to be important in the life of a child?

Yes, I will sponsor a child!

Through a sponsorship (EUR 27/GBP 24 per month) you give the child the gift of a future and make his or her world "a better place". And maybe the world will be different a hundred years from now because you were important in the life of this child!

Your support enables the sponsored child to grow into a self-confident and independent adult. It is our goal to develop children in such a way that they can support themselves when the sponsorship ends.

In a child development centre, the boy or girl receives an education, health care and nutrition, regularly engages in sports and games, learns social skills and spiritual/moral values. Through income generating projects and awareness raising trainings for parents, the child's family situation is also improved significantly.

In Helping Hands CDCs, as in all other Helping Hands projects, those families receive help that are in greatest need of it, regardless of their religion or denomination. Who is most in need of help in a community is decided by local staff members in consultation with the community people.

Please send me additional information!

The sponsorship program began in 1982 in Africa, when Dr Richard Zanner saw the great need of parents who couldn't send their children to school due to poverty. Appealing to individuals and churches in Germany, he started the child sponsorship program, which soon expanded internationally. During the past 30 years, thousands of children worldwide have been sponsored and thanks to this assistance have been able to start or complete their education.

For Euro 27 per month (GBP 24) you can support one child (Euro 2 will be deducted for administrative expenses in Germany). You are welcome to correspond with your child at any time (please always send correspondence through the Helping Hands office). If you have to withdraw your sponsorship for any reason, the child will be supported through an emergency fund until a new sponsor can be found.
