You can sponsor a child with Vision Africa today from as little as £10 per month. It’s easy to do, just fill in our o n-line application form and let us know how you want to pay. Alternatively you can download a form and pop it in the post to us.
We offer four levels of sponsorship, ranging from £10 / 1350 Ksh / US$16 a month (or yearly equivalent) for basic educational sponsorship up to £20 / 2700KSh / US$32 a month for sponsorship of a cot in our Baby Unit. Just choose which type of sponsorship you would like when you fill in the form.
Sponsoring a child through Vision Africa helps to ensure that we can meet the learning and care needs of that child. Whilst this varies for children in different projects we aim to ensure that they can progress with their education, are well looked after in a safe, healthy environment and enjoy at least one nutritious meal each day.
Vision Africa integrates child sponsorship funds into our work at partner projects. We look at the project as a ‘big picture’ so your sponsorship may support more than one child, or part of the needs of a child. We find this to be the most effective way of ensuring maximum benefit to the individual children who are sponsored. This also ensures that individual children are not dropped from the project if sponsorship ceases or is interrupted.
