A Different Kind of Child Sponsorship

When you become a cbm Child Sponsor, you’re part of a different kind of child sponsorship.

Sponsor a child

Here’s how we are distinctive from other child sponsorship programs.

Care for children living in poverty with a DISABILITY. We bring hope and healing to the poorest and most marginalized.
Your child sponsorship covers the cost of surgery and rehabilitation for one child. You are literally investing in life-changing work.
Less complex and less expensive to administer, therefore more of your dollars are invested in improving children’s lives.
Each child is given a personalized surgery/rehabilitation plan, depending on their disability.

The result, your child sponsorship helps families and communities lift themselves out of poverty by providing job training, business coaching, small loans.

We find children who are forgotten  forgotten by their communities, by other development organizations all because they have a disability.

Your Child Sponsorship plan

Finding a Child

Children with a disability are often hidden away in dark corners or overlooked – forgotten – by governments or aid programs. Your gifts help find them.

Life-saving Action

Most children with disabilities need urgent medical care or intensive rehabilitation. Your sponsorship saves their lives.

Continue Caring

Even after a child’s impairment is addressed, they aren’t ready to face life alone. Your cbm Child Sponsorship helps break down the barriers and stigma of disability, so children are welcomed back into their families, schools and communities.

For being a Child Sponsor, here’s what you’ll receive:

Progress updates and reports from one of our representative children over a 12 month period.
