I love y'all. The people working in Kansas City answer all of my questions. They are well versed in all of the info they give me. I have watched my three children grow from sad faces to happy ones.... This brings me so much joy. I really feel like I am making a difference. I promote CI when ever I can. On Facebook etc.. It makes me sad though that people can't even part with 35$ per month to potentially save a life. This breaks my heart since CI is such a wonderful organization. My 3 kids feel like my very own. I tell people they are my children. Because that is exactly what it feels like. Thanks CI for this great gift! See More

once I was a sponsored child in Colombia and thanks to this incredible organization I had the opportunity to enjoy so nice things I could never ever imagine because of poverty. I'm 37 now and I also ...could get in touch again with my "godfather" as I always called him and I'm so happy to have him and his family back in my life ;) Thanks for all your help. See More

Each time that I've called CI for technical difficulties or needed information, I have gotten a prompt reply and a shower of love from the people working for this organization! My sponsored child is g...rowing in her body and mind with each letter that I receive and it is a thrill to witness some of her changes. Most of all, her love of her family and friends nourishes her soul, which is really healthy!! Thank you for a great experience in "doing something about it" instead of just feeling bad about poverty. Share love and imagine how it grows! See More

I skip a meal out, cook at home, and Support a Child in Need. The difference made is amazing. They write letters in their new school and it feels like you, one out of a million in need...have really something that makes a difference. And they sure let you know it. It feels like something you just can’t experience anymore in this day and age...!! Please look into it..! See More

I sponsored a little girl named Evelyn Lissette Mejia Contreras for 7 years. I loved that young lady! All of a sudden, one day, I get a picture of a new kid and a letter stating that Evelyn could no l...onger be my child because she got pregnant and decided to keep her baby. I would have been more than happy to sponsor her baby, too! You guys just took her away from me after 7 years. See More

OK I sponsored a little girl named braisha through children international. She was from little rock Arkansas. For a year and a half I would write to her and send her s card, always with stockers in i...t .she was about 5yrs old. I have a son Dustin White, he turns 18 tomorrow and braisha would turn 18 in a week and a half. I always called then twin's but was not. I sent her Birthday a present from Kalamazoo Michigan, Christmas and after a year and a half I get told I can no longer sponsor her because her mother got a job but then had another child in mine !!!! That broke mine and my son's heart. My name is Stephanie White am I'm in Kalamazoo Michigan. I would like to wish my little twin a Happy 18th Birthday. Was never given her last name. She was always on our minds. We love You B. Stephanie... See More

Those of us who have the opportunity to help others, it is a feeling that you only know when you do it, but to help others is to help others, as written in The Holy Scriptures of God, AMEN!

I've sponsored Jacqueline for nearly a decade, and it has been wonderful. The process is easy and I honestly feel that her life has been made better by this program.

Your overall health and quality of sleep are connected — when you don't get a good night's rest, you're more at risk for getting sick. Studies also show that children who sleep less have a greater risk of obesity and lower cognitive ability, which affect their performance in school.

In many impoverished communities around the world, kids must share small beds — sometimes just a mattress or pad — with their siblings or parents. Get a peek into the homes of some of our sponsored kids and where they sleep:…/where-children-dream

Although difficult sleeping conditions and other hardships of poverty often rob children of their dreams, the benefits of sponsorship give them a reason to hope.

THANK YOU! From all of us on #TeamCI, for helping #createhope for girls in honor of International Women’s Day! Together, we reached our goal of giving life-changing opportunities to girls in need through child sponsorship. By coming together to support girls, we are helping them overcome the obstacles of poverty and gender inequality to build a stronger future and a better world.

Helping a child overcome a life of poverty is no small task, but together we can end child poverty for good through #childsponsorship. Here's how it works.
