Sponsor an orphan/street kid for just £1 a day
£1 a day is all it takes to provide an orphan or street kid (abandoned, literally living on the streets) with a place to stay, food, clothing and education.
This project is currently running in Bangladesh, where we are working with established and experienced local partner organisations.
Charity information: ChildrenPlus
Many children are orphaned due to natural disasters and diseases, often with no one to take care of them. Other children are abandoned by people no longer able to look after them.
These children survive by begging or eating scraps thrown away by other impoverished families. They often go many days without a single scrap of food.
A 'lucky' few find jobs working as labourers or servants, where they are mistreated and abused. Children as young as 6yrs old usually work 16-18 hrs a day.
We are working with local partner organisations to provide these children with accommodation, food and education (paying for school fees, uniforms, books, etc.).

What success will look like
Success will be measured by the number of children we care for through sponsorships.
We aim to give these children a caring, nurturing environment in which to grow and develop into successful members of society. Through education and skills training, we aim to give them the tools they need to lead independent lives.
Sponsorship of orphans in a country like Bangladesh can sometimes lead to issues with carers mismanaging funds.
We have therefore carefully selected partners with a track record of transparency and openness, and a professional attitude towards the care of orphans.
Donors will be provided with annual reports on the children, along with photographs and a letter or postcard from each child.
