Child Sponsorship

Change a child’s life forever from less than $1 a day

Many children throughout East Africa are deprived of an education. They lack the opportunity to reach their full potential by attending a school. However, our Sponsorship program ensures the most vulnerable children are identified and provided with the assistance they need to go to school. As a result, they develop skills to enable them to break out of the cycle of poverty and hardship.

When you sponsor a child with Fields of Life it enables you to play a significant role in shaping his/her future.

For just $28/$38 per month you can provide a child with: an education; a uniform; a meal and stationery.

Emmanuel Okello, a former sponsored child says: “Thanks to my sponsor I was able to complete primary school and also study at Dara Christian High School where I passed my final exams. Through school, I have been made aware of my unique potential. I have blossomed in my spiritual life. Lasting friendships have been made. I am a witness to the fulfillment of the Fields of Life vision of changing lives and building hope. Today, I am the most educated in my family and I am the only person in my village pursuing a legal career. I am immensely grateful to my sponsor for giving me this opportunity. I know that my life will continue to be transformed.”

What do I receive?

Initially, when you sponsor a child, you will receive a pack containing some background information and photographs of your sponsored child and family.

On an ongoing basis you will receive 2 letters, as well as a Christmas Card from the child you sponsor.  Although some of the little ones are too young to write or form sentences in English, they make up for it with enthusiastic and colourful artwork.
