Child sponsorship is the primary means of support for our various child development programs. For a financial support commitment (generally $30/month donation), sponsors are matched with a specific child in the program whom they can get to know through letters and periodic updates. Anyone can be a sponsor – individuals or families, businesses, schools, church groups. We can facilitate sponsorships locally as well as internationally through our overseas partners. Dual sponsorships (two sponsors sharing the support commitment for one child), as well as program sponsorships (contributing toward a program rather than being matched with a child) are also possible.

How to Sponsor:

If you would like to have a positive impact in the life of a child through sponsorship, please fill out the sponsorship inquiry form below. A sponsorship representative will contact you to provide you with information regarding your sponsored child and how to begin your new sponsorship.

This child sponsorship program is run by Yezelalem Minch Children and Community Development, registered charity organization in Ethiopia under license number 0201.
