We know sponsorship works. But before we can support children in poverty through sponsorship, we need to ensure babies survive.
Through our Child Survival Programme, mothers and babies are given all they need to survive, including:
+ access to vital medical care (including a trained medical attendant at the birth)
+ essential parenting skills workshops
+ healthy meals and advice on nutrition
We have seen thousands of women and children overcome the struggles of poverty in a child's first year of life.
Sponsorship Plus provides help for mothers and babies, and additional support for sponsored children, their families and communities, such as:
+ vaccinations and emergency medical treatment
+ water and sanitation needs
+ income generation workshops
+ child protection training
A monthly donation to Sponsorship Plus helps us reach children earlier, and keep them in the sponsorship programme when unexpected situations occur.
