for Healthy Sponsorship Programs

We engage in sponsorship programs because we want what’s best for children – particularly those who are vulnerable.

However, like any program, sponsorship has the potential for great good and great harm.

Over the last decade, organizations and donors have been thinking critically about how these programs operate. Research is limited – but that’s not the end of the story!  There is growing consensus among NGOs on core guidelines for a healthy sponsorship program.  Explore this first-of-its-kind resource, toolkit, and audit to help you honestly evaluate your sponsorship program and identify areas to grow.
