Sponsor a childhood

A girl behind a door - Indonesia

Sponsoring a child can support the future of one of the thousands of children living in an SOS Children's Village. You can give regularly, or as a one-off payment by sponsoring a child for their whole childhood.

To do this you need to make a one-off gift of £5000. This will pay for a sponsorship for a child until she or he is grown up and independent. Plus £10 on every birthday will go into a savings account for your sponsored child.

There is flexibility in amount and duration where required. We will arrange for you to receive all the usual sponsorship communications for your child including a photograph and regular updates.

Small print

The following "small print" on this is important, so we are not putting it in small type:

  • We will not use any part of this gift to pay for any UK administration costs or other UK costs, but we may use some of any earned interest for UK costs such as sending you communications, and we may use some of it for other projects abroad.
  • Our actual costs of postage etc. running a sponsorship are around £1 a month.
  • Occasionally children do leave our sponsorship programs for a variety of reasons. Should the child reach independence or leave our sponsorship programme before the sponsorship has finished, we will use the remaining funds as a village sponsorship for other projects at that location, and you or your nominee will get sponsorship information for the location.
