How does Child Sponsorship Work

Pockets of Promise child sponsorship programs focus on improving the physical, emotional, and social well-being of the most vulnerable children. Our experience has proven that the most effective way to help a child is to strengthen the child’s entire community, caring for every child along the way. In fact, because of these community-focused solutions, for every child, you help, 4 more benefits, too! 
Your monthly sponsorship gift is combined with other donations to invest in after-school programs and long-term resources for your sponsored child and their whole community, as well as other children in need.

Why These Children and Communities?

Our on-the-ground staff identify communities that are deeply affected by poverty and which could benefit the most from our holistic approach. Through careful evaluation and interviews, we select the children in those communities who are in most urgent need of full support. Many of the programs that we provide such as our clean water and nutrition programs benefit not only sponsored children, but all children and families in the community.
