Sponsor a child in Niger
and change their life for good
Children in Niger battle extreme poverty every day. Only half the rural population can get safe drinking water.
But, across the world we're reaching one new person with clean water every 10 seconds, and three more schools every day.*
As a child sponsor, you can help a child have water, food, child protection, training and skills, an education and a better future, for just 85p a day.

Fataou's life in Niger
Fataou’s daily needs:
For children like Fataou, growing up in Sirba, hunger and malnutrition are facts of life. Parents can’t grow enough nutritious food to feed their children. Children often have to work to help their families make ends meet, instead of going to school.
- Children don't get enough food to eat, and often go hungry.
- Children get sick from drinking dirty water.
- Many children are afraid of abuse, at home and at school.
Your sponsorship can change Fataou's world, and his community, for good.
How Sponsorship Helps
When you sponsor a child for £26 a month it brings much needed change to one child… and many more. The benefits you help provide, extend to your child's family, their community and other children in need. This is because we partner, plan and work alongside local community members to help build healthy, sustainable communities for vulnerable children in the world’s hardest places.
We listen to the child's community and help to identify their main needs.
We work with the community to develop a long-term action plan.
We make sure immediate needs are met, then move on to start the process of deeper, sustainable change.
We train volunteers, empower local groups, and provide resources and support for the community to make changes that will last long into the future.
What will your donation actually change?
Because of our community-focused solutions, for every child you help, four more children benefit, too. Depending on the priority needs in your child’s community, as a sponsor you will be improving lives by providing:
Each year children are dying from diseases caught by drinking dirty water. World Vision is reaching one new person with clean water every 10 seconds and brings clean water to three more schools every day.
We save lives by training volunteer health care assistants, bringing vaccination programmes, and working with families to help protect their children from infection and disease ensuring the most vulnerable have access to healthcare services.
We deliver nutrition programmes and farmers' schools, teaching new techniques to grow stronger crops, protect the soil and grow kitchen gardens - helping families feed their children and saving millions of lives around the world.
Education can transform a child’s life. We’re improving basic literacy and numeracy and working alongside communities to help them better understand their children's rights, and raise their voices to protect and provide for their children.
We provide training in new skills, and support mothers to start their own businesses helping provide a stable income so children and families can have better nutrition, healthcare and greater access to education.

World Vision is reaching one new person with clean water every 10 seconds and reaches three more schools every day with clean water.*
*Based on an average of 2.86 million people per year over the last five years (2013-2017) reached with access to clean water, and an average of seven schools/ day over the past two years (2016-2017).
2.86 million people per year/ 31,536 million seconds per year results in one person on average every 10 seconds being reached with clean water. An average of 2,264 schools were reached over two years. That is equivalent to seven schools per day, rounded down to three schools per day to account for potential fluctuations from year to year given that data has been tracked for only two years.
