Sponsor a Child in Africa

How Can I Sponsor a Child in Africa?

With GFA World, the question, “How can I sponsor a child in Africa?” is easy to answer. You can visit GFA’s website and click on the “Sponsoring Children” icon. On that page, you will see the kids who are awaiting sponsorship. You can then select which child you would like to sponsor. The $35/month donations are tax deductible and can be made monthly or annually through various channels. After that, you are connected to a child to write to and pray for. You receive a picture of them, and, using an online portal or the mail, you can send them pictures and letters too.[1]

GFA’s Child Sponsorship Program provides education support to kids who would otherwise struggle to attend school. Education is often the most important key to breaking the generational cycle of poverty, but in sub-Saharan Africa, 32 million children are not in school. Thus, the program is incredibly important here. When kids go to school and become educated, their futures change as new opportunities for higher-paying jobs open up. GFA has already enrolled more than 1,000 children in Rwanda, and we are in the process of enrolling hundreds more as time goes on.[2]

Your sponsorship also provides help and hope that transforms entire communities. To expand the reach and impact of sponsorship, GFA embraces a community development model where sponsored children, their families and their communities receive the benefits and blessings of the program. Of course, the child is the priority, but the child is best provided for through the community. By providing clean water, hygiene training, sanitation facilities and healthcare, GFA improves the whole neighborhood. We even offer free vocational training and other awareness activities for community members to improve the prospects of everyone, giving the child a more nurturing environment that is conducive to their success.[3]

One sponsor said this of the program, “God placed in my heart to help. We are so blessed to live in a country that has so much more than we ever need. How much do we spend selfishly? Doesn’t God Himself say give to the poor, widowed and orphan?”[4]

Consider partnering with us this effort to help end poverty around the world, and doing it all in the name of Christ.

To sponsor a child in Africa with GFA is to open the door to a brighter future for them, their family, and their whole community.
