Sponsor a Child and Save a Family

Children thrive when they are in a family. Yet, many families in the developing world struggle to stay together because of hunger, poverty, disease or conflict, putting their children at risk for abandonment. 

Through the Wide Horizons For Children Child Sponsorship Program, you can help a vulnerable family stay together. Your sponsorship provides intensive, personalized support and resources that sustain families today, empower them for tomorrow and help their children succeed.
