We work with communities for ten years or more, until they are equipped to stand on their own two feet. So when you sponsor a child, you’ll have several years to watch them grow, and see all the change in their community. Your sponsorship will usually last until your sponsored child reaches the age of 18 or leaves education. But it also depends on how long we’ve been working with that community. If you join us later on in the journey, your sponsorship might end sooner, once we’ve achieved what we set out to do there.
If the project where you are sponsoring comes to an end, or your child moves on for any reason, we’ll let you know and give you the opportunity to sponsor another child. This means you'll no longer be able to exchange letters or visit your old sponsored child.
