Child sponsorship is about sponsoring a child and supporting the child's community to help take good care of its children.
Support a child by making a contribution(s) through: Netbanking, Credit Card payments, Standing Instruction on your bank account / credit card, e-Wallet payments
Children from the deprived communities are exposed a lot of forces that keep her/him out of school. We see children laboring in farms, way side dhabas, to the numerous workshops, factories and household enterprises in the unorganized sector. 56% of girls in India are either not in school or will drop out before the age of 14 owing to several socio-cultural-economic reasons. Your child sponsorship will not only ensure education and adequate nutrition to the child, but will also address the issues that keep her/ him out of school
This intervention does not stop with the child, but also covers her/his parents. We constantly interact with the parents and council them on the importance of education, right nutrition, Child-rights, gender-equality, time management, health & hygiene amongst the others. We ensure that the child gets complete and undivided support and encouragement from the parents. At the micro-level we also intervene and address the various factors that had initially kept the child out of school.
The community development process begins with earning the trust of the community by promoting and advocating community development activities in the field of education, health, agriculture, livelihood etc. This matures to become a long term partnership that eventually leads to a long lasting social change! As a result of your support, the children and their communities will gain access to their rights to dignity, food, shelter, education and livelihood.

ActionAid India has been working with poor and marginalised people in India since 1972. We work in 25 states and one Union Territory reaching out to over 8 million people every year, those of whom belong to the most marginalised and excluded groups.
If one out of 10 people in our country support one poor child we can make all children go to school and ensure secured future.
