Overseas Child Sponsorship
Together We Are Helping Children Thrive

Join our community of compassionate world changers committed to children rising above poverty and into a full and dignified life.

Sponsor Now

Hey, world changer,

We partner with people like you who are committed to helping children live a life free from poverty through a sponsorship model that supports the holistic development of children from poor communities. Our schools, children's homes and after-school programs ensure children have the opportunity to reach their full potential and become agents of transformation in their own communities. 

We believe every child deserves quality care, education, spiritual and financial support through their formative years, and we need your help to succeed. Here's how:

Partner with a Salvation Army school, children's home or community center serving children from poor communities.

Provide a $25 monthly sponsorship to directly support the physical, social, emotional and spiritual development of children.

Help children reach their full potential and become agents of transformation in their own communities.

As A Sponsor, You Can Support A Cause You Believe In.

Whether you are passionate about protecting child victims of trafficking, ensuring children with disabilities receive quality education, or providing food, clothing and shelter to children who lack access to their basic needs, we need partners like you to help us provide essential services to children in need by sponsoring work that is important to you. Select a cause near to your heart or view a full list of our centers reaching children with the greatest needs.

Children's Center Highlight

Bethany Chilren's Center - Philippines

In 1999, BCH re-focused its programs and services to serve sexually abused girls particularly those needing special protection during court trials, psychological and spiritual help. In 2017, The Salvation Army became the lead organization in the protection aspects of the child protection compact between The United States government and the Philippines government. This compact addresses online sexual abuse of children, a new danger for children in the Philippines. Also known as "cyber trafficking," "Child webcam tourism," or "internet-facilitated sex trafficking," OSEC, is the production, for the purpose of on line publication, of visual or audio depictions of the sexual abuse of a minor for a third party who is not in the physical presence of the victim. Online live streaming is the new phenomenon in the commercial sexual exploitation of children in the Philippines.

Sustaining Excellence at Bethany Children's Home

The funding we have received from the state department comes to an end October 2019. Our current project helps meet an urgent and growing need in the Philippines and helps to staff the home with highly qualified people. In order to sustain this project when it ends we are looking for donors who are willing to help us build $165,000 of annual giving. Again, we already have funding through October 2019, but are looking to build a fund that can be used to sustain the project into the coming years.

At The Salvation Army, We Know What It Takes To Do Good.

Like you, we believe every child deserves to experience a full and dignified life. That's why advocating for the rights of children has been an integral part of our ministry since the beginning of The Salvation Army history. Now with over 150 years of serving those with the greatest needs, The Salvation Army has provided thousands of children with holistic care in our children's homes, schools, and child development centers operating in the most impoverished communities around the globe. Join us as we seek a world where every child can thrive.

Our Vision

Motivated by the love of God, The Salvation Army's Sponsorship Program aims to ensure the holistic development of children. By demonstrating God's love in action, every child will be loved and valued and given the opportunity to reach their full potential and contribute back to their families and communities.

Who Are the Children We Serve?

Around the world, The Salvation Army works in impoverished communities providing children affected by poverty, abuse, neglect, and trafficking with essential services and compassionate care in children's homes, schools, and community centers. We believe in the inherent value of every child and serve children in need without discrimination.
