Send A Christmas Greeting to your sponsored child

Changing a child’s life living in extreme poverty takes more than just food and water. It takes the loving care of Jesus sustained through a community of people. As a child’s sponsor you’re part of that care community and are able to invest in their life in a deep and meaningful way. 
This Christmas, give your sponsored child the invaluable gift of seeing your face and hearing your voice with our easy video message tool.

lasting transformation around the world

Child Focused

We focus on providing children with the tools and opportunities they need to overcome poverty and transform future generations.

Local Leaders

All of our programs are envisioned and run by local leaders pouring into their own people.

Sustainable Programs

We work with our communities, not for them, to determine their unique needs and discover creative solutions to overcome poverty.

We're in it for the long haul.

Changing futures takes time. And often, it’s done one child at a time. Perla is a stunning example of how the tangible love of others—and Christ—sustained over a long period of time can radically transform the life of a child born into poverty.

Who we are
