Every child has a story

This exciting opportunity enables you to gain greater insight into the life of one or more of our children.

By committing to a regular donation of R200 /£20 / €20 / $20 (payable monthly or annually), you will receive both the background details of the child and bi-annual news. Whilst it costs a far greater amount to provide for all the needs of a child in our care, this contribution is of great benefit and so appreciated.

 It is a wonderful way for our supporters to experience the impact of our work. Due to reasons of confidentiality and child protection, we are not able to supply sponsors with photos of the children, however a self-portrait sketch is provided.

To be part of this rewarding experience of sponsoring a child, please send an email to

The below stories are true, however the children’s names have been changed to protect their identities.
