Sixty years of experience has shown us that children thrive in families. That's why the ultimate goal of Holt's child sponsorship program is to ensure that every orphaned, abandoned and vulnerable child has a stable, loving home.


every child deserves a home

Whenever possible, we work to reunite or keep sponsored children with their families. Holt's on-the-ground staff works directly with each family - developing a plan tailored to their circumstances, and providing the tools and resources they need to grow stable over time. If that's not an option for your sponsored child, then your support will provide the highest quality temporary care while we find the right adoptive family.

give a voice to the voiceless

The children in Holt sponsorship are the most vulnerable in the world. They live in difficult-to-reach rural areas, have special medical or physical needs, or may be orphaned or displaced. They often live in  extreme poverty - surviving on less than $1 per day. For $34 per month, you provide everything an orphaned or vulnerable child needs to survive today - and thrive tomorrow.


help a child today, prepare them for tomorrow

With your support, we work to develop a holistic, individulized plan for every child in our sponsorship program. We partner with local schools, churches, child welfare organizations, government officials, hospitals and more to provide services that help struggling families grow stable and self-reliant, and to  provide quality care to orphaned, homeless or displaced children. Depending on the needs of the child you sponsor, you monthly gifts may provide food, education, medical care, family support, foster care, and more.


This is how we have come to know love: He laid down His life for us.We should also lay down our lives for our brothers. If anyone has this world’s goods and sees his brother in need but closes his eyes to his need—how can God’s love reside in him? Little children, we must not love with word or speech, but with truth and action. 1 John 3:16-18 (HCSB)

Pure and undefiled religion before our God and Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself unstained by the world. James 1:27(HCSB)


How Often Will I Hear From My Sponsored Child?


At least three times per year, your child or family's advocate, teacher, or social worker will help prepare an update directly from the child and family themselves. Over time, these updates will show you the incredible impact you are making in your sponsored child's life.
