Why Sponsorship?

Child Sponsorship is one of the best ways to ensure a positive future for the children of Future Stars. We have many children needing sponsors. It costs just £35/month to sponsor one of these vulnerable children. That money will guarantee the child an education, clothes, food, and healthcare.

Sponsorship really does make a difference. Without a sponsor, it can be very difficult for a child to complete their education. And without this achievement, the future can look grim for someone born into the difficult life of the Kibera slum. Sponsorship provides children with real opportunities to forge a path out of poverty – through their own dedication. You can learn more about the very real benefits of the Chaffinch Child Sponsorship Programme by reading the story of one of our sponsored children – Boaz.

When I first started sponsoring Tashley she sent me scribbles. Now she sends a picture of a house and writes her name. Whatever her next achievement is I will be with her all the way.


Child Sponsor

I decided to sponsor Samuel after seeing updates from Chaffinch about an ongoing medical condition he had, and it’s been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!
I love receiving his letters and drawings and to see how he’s grown, not only in strength but confidence too. Every time I see him his cheeky smile seems to get bigger and bigger! Not to mention his love of dancing!
I’d definitely recommend sponsorship through Chaffinch as it really does make a difference, not just to the child but to you! I’ll continue to help Samuel and Chaffinch and look forward to seeing him grow and develop into his future.
Don’t hesitate to set up sponsorship, it’s simple and easy and I promise you, you won’t regret it!
