Save an Orphan One-to-One Sponsorship Programmes
Save an Orphan Sponsorship Programmes operate in the Asia and Africa to support young children orphaned by war, disease, drought or famine.
When you sponsor an orphan you provide the family with the extra support to give the child everything they need.
Your support will mean families are able to provide good food, new clothes and send their children to school.
You will join our family of sponsors and we will send you individual letters, drawings, photographs and reports twice a year, so you can see your child progress.
Building a future through education
At Save an Orphan, the foundation of our one-to-one sponsorship programmes is the provision of a comprehensive education for every child.
All sponsored orphans are enrolled in a local community school where they can learn, play and fulfil their potential alongside children their own age.
A mother, a teacher and the companionship of friends has a profound and lasting effect on a child, giving them back the childhood they deserve and a second chance at life.
Teaching the skills a father and mother would
There is no greater tragedy for a child than the death of ones parents.
Not only are they deprived of their parents love and affection, they also lose the knowledge, skills and guidance that generations of parents have shared with their children.
That is why every Save an Orphan sponsorship includes livelihood programmes designed to teach practical skills like how to raise livestock, sew, irrigate the land and farm crops.
Orphans learn how to support themselves and generate their own income, equipping them with the practical knowledge and trade skills that are essential for their survival in later life.
You can save an orphan for £300 or £25 a month for a year. You can also support those in greatest need with a one-off donation by ticking the “where most needed” box.
