You can change a child's life for the better; from sorrow and hunger to joy and wellbeing. With your help, a child can discover Jesus' love for them and realise their potential, becoming leaders and creating lasting change in their families and communities.

Tearfund partners with Compassion International, whose child sponsorship programme builds long-term relationships between children and their local church family and gives them an education, access to a doctor and safe places to play. You can read more about how Child Sponsorship works here.
