Sponsor a child
Why sponsor a child?
Your support helps to give a child an excellent education by helping to pay for their school fees, school uniforms, shoes, and school books and equipment. But it doesn’t stop there. Many of our children have lost both of their parents and child sponsorship provides the support necessary to enable other family members to care for them, stopping them ending up in an orphanage or on the streets. Your support also covers medical expenses when they are unwell.
Fidel’s mother couldn’t afford to send him to school and sometimes went without meals:
“Fidel is fed nutritious meals and gets a good education because the school is one of the best in the area. I have more hope for my child’s future. And gifts sent by Fidel’s sponsor, including food vouchers, mosquito nets and bedding, have helped a great deal.”
Sponsoring a child will also transform your life. As their unique sponsor you’ll receive letters from your sponsored child and have the privilege of watching them thrive and grow.
Julie has been sponsoring Jackeline since 2008:
“I started sponsoring after hearing a work colleague talk about TKWL. It is brilliant being part of something that you know is making a difference to a child and their family. In 2010 I had the privilege of visiting Simon Newberry School, and Jackeline in her home with her family. It was amazing to go and see where my money was going and see the difference sponsoring had made to Jackeline and her whole family.”
Where does my money go?
100% of child sponsorship goes overseas. Sponsorship funds help pay for school uniforms, shoes, school books and equipment, pay various school fees and cover medical expenses when they are unwell. You can be sure we’ll achieve as much as possible with every pound you give us, to change lives for good.
What do I get as a sponsor?
As a TKWL sponsor, we will keep you regularly updated on the progress of your sponsored child. They will write to you twice a year and you will receive a photo and a copy of their school report every year. Through photos and letters you’ll be able to get to know your child personally and see the difference that sponsorship makes to your child. Our newsletters will also keep you informed about all of our activities.
Clinton has been sponsored since he started primary school:
“TKWL has helped me to realise my potential. I have just joined Moi University in Nairobi, pursuing a degree in Business Management. The course will help me become an entrepreneur. I will achieve my best!”
Jacob’s son attends Simon Newberry Primary School:
“Washington’s sponsor has given me hope that one day he will achieve his dream of being an artist and furthering his studies to a higher level.”
How much does it cost to sponsor a child?
£25 per month finances a child in nursery or primary school.
What if I can’t afford the full amount?
If you are unable to commit to £25 every month but would still like to regularly support a child, we can arrange for you to part sponsor a child. Whatever you are able to give will help to support the education of a child. There are many different ways you can get involved and support the work of TKWL.
