What does it mean to sponsor a girl?  You give $37 a month to provide one girl with food, water, health care and education.  You can exchange letters with the child you sponsor, share pictures and learn about her family and community.

If sponsoring a girl sounds like something you’d like to do, you can throw a fundraiser to raise the money.  Or you could get your whole family to contribute to the project.  It’s even something a school could do together.

Remember, a healthy and educated girl can do a lot for her family, her community and herself. So, you’re actually helping a lot of people, not just the girl you sponsor.
