Child Sponsorship

Change a child’s life forever from less than 56p 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 programme ensures the most vulnerable children are identified and given the assistance 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 you play a significant role in shaping his/her future.

For just £17/£24 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. In my village I am the only person pursuing a legal career. I am immensely grateful to my sponsor for this opportunity and I know that my life will continue to be transformed.”

What do I receive?

When you sponsor a child, you will receive a pack with 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, they make up for it with colourful artwork.
