Through your sponsorship gift, your child receives education, clothing and essential materials. Our local children’s worker provides committed welfare and medical support, both at school and in the home.
Accountability is important to us. For every £1 of donated money we spend in the course of a typical year:
89p – Children – supporting vulnerable children and communities.
7p – Management – central administrative costs and fulfilling statutory requirements.
3p – Fundraising – raising funds and building awareness.
1p – Governance – Fulfilling the legal responsibilities of trustees, financial controls, and child safeguarding compliance.
Sponsorship with Global Care does not single out a child for privilege, but helps narrow the gap between the most vulnerable children and their local peers. Reducing local inequality makes the whole community stronger.
Global Care works through grassroots partners; local people who know the needs of their community best. So each sponsorship programme is culturally appropriate and tailored to the needs of each local context.
Sometimes a sponsorship programme will kickstart other community initiatives. For instance, in seeking to help sponsored children access education in rural Zambia, our partners helped the local community develop their own primary school 1. They also delivered clean water to the same community, formerly dependent on river water alone.
