Your sponsorship in action

Child sponsorship is an incredibly rewarding and practical way of helping change the lives of some of Australia's most vulnerable children.

With your help we can support the thousands of Australian children suffering the devastating consequences of abuse and neglect.

When a child comes into our care this is just the beginning of their long journey towards healing.

Your ongoing commitment means that we can be there for them at each step and allows us to give these children the best possible chance of building a brighter future.
