Sharing a Smile – Sponsor a Child
For less than a bag of chocolates you can make a distinct difference to a child’s life, by providing them with love, joy and a future, for less than 85p a day. By sponsoring a child with Smile, you will be actively turning tears into smiles and helping give a child the support they need to grow and change their lives . Your child is the future of their country and we are passionate in serving these children so that they can reach their God-given potential.
Make a difference today!
Sponsoring a child is an exciting and rewarding partnership between you the sponsor and your sponsored child. The knowledge that you are providing an education for your child and giving them hope for the future and the opportunity to grow in a caring environment is reward enough but for your sponsored child it is more than this – it is knowing that someone, somewhere, cares for them.
We believe that this knowledge has a far-reaching effect on the child’s life and attitude to society, and that sponsorship makes a valuable contribution to the quality of their communities in the future. Your donation of £25 per month will make an enormous difference, so please consider sponsoring today.
Our Sharing a Smile programme supports children through to the end of their secondary education.
Why they need your help
Did you know that poverty kills 1 child every 3 seconds? Many of the children in our Sponsor a Child programme are AIDS orphans or come from families suffering poverty and illness, unable to support and care for their children.
Smile International provides the children with an education, health and spiritual care, sport and recreational activities and operates regardless of a child’s religion, race, ethnicity or gender. In some countries we are able to provide an opportunity for the children to learn income-generating skills as they get older, which helps them become self-sufficient as they approach adulthood. Where possible, children are also provided with a meal during term-time.
Becoming a sponsor
- £25 per month
By sponsoring a child with Smile International, you will help give a child the support they need to grow and empower their lives. Your sponsorship will provide a child with the opportunity to receive an education and have access to healthcare and pastoral support.
What will I as a sponsor receive?
As a sponsor you will receive:
- A photo
- A profile of your child
- A pack explaining sponsorship
- Communication from your child
- The opportunity to visit your child through Smile International Step Out trips
Individuals, school classes, clubs and churches can also sponsor a child, taking them out of the poverty cycle and providing hope for the future. If you are more than one individual sponsoring a child, please send one payment on behalf of the group and allocate one person to write for the group.
