How Sponsorship Works


When you sponsor a child, your monthly gift goes into a fund for your child’s program. Your gift, along with those of other sponsors,
 ensures all our children receive the same level of care. As we gain new sponsors, we are able to bring more children into our care.

Sponsorships start at just $32 a month for children in our Village Partnership Program and $43 for children in our Children's Homes Program.

Focusing on the specific needs of the children in each village, this care includes things like:


Develop a Relationship

One reason sponsorship is so effective at fighting poverty is that it provides more than a monetary solution. The relationship you build with your child lets them know you personally care for them. By writing letters to your child, you will develop a lasting relationship that benefits both of you.

Experience a New Culture

Learning about your child’s country and community will open your eyes to a new culture and to the impact your care is having. We offer life-changing opportunities for sponsors to visit their children and get a firsthand look at our ministry in each of the countries we serve.

Watch Your Child Grow

You will get to see your child grow and flourish through annual updates and photos. You’ll witness the impact your sponsorship is having on their life, year after year.

Frequently Asked Questions for Prospective Sponsors


In meeting two of our four sponsored children, I have seen firsthand how it provides the basic necessities in a loving, Christ-centered family environment where they can be healthy, attend school, and have hope for a brighter future. We often think we are blessing the children through sponsoring, and we do, but they truly bless us in return.

-DeAnn, COTN sponsor

"My sponsors provide me with soap, shoes, and other basic support that keeps me in school. Receiving soap keeps me in school because I am able to wash my school uniform and attend classes. And my parents could not afford to buy me good shoes and a school bag because they run a small business that struggles day by day.
"I look beautiful and happy, because I am assured all my needs are met with the support [my sponsors] give me."

-Christina of Malawi

I have seen firsthand the comprehensive care Children of the Nations provides. Your sponsorship changes a child's life in every way! Through the help of COTN, the children are full of hope and are being equipped for the future. You get to bring smiles and hope to poor and destitute children. It does not get any better!
