Sponsor a Child in Africa

There are an estimated 55 million orphaned children in Africa, children who are in need for support for their future.

For close to 50 years, SOS Children's Villages has been providing orphaned and abandoned children in Africa with loving homes.  There are currently over 16,000 children who are being raised in SOS Villages across the African continent.

For just $36/month you can sponsor a child in Africa and help provide an orphaned or abandoned child with a loving home. Through your child sponsorship, your sponsored child receives:

  • A safe and nurturing home
  • A loving SOS mother
  • Quality education
  • Healthcare
  • Nutritious food
  • Clothing and toys
  • All the things necessary for a bright future

We believe that no child should grow up alone.

We hope you do too. Sponsor a child in Africa today!
