Sponsor a Child in Africa
Sponsoring a child through SOS Africa is a truly unique, life changing experience for you as a sponsor, but also the life of the african child you are supporting. The sad fact of the matter, is that without the help of its sponsors, the children supported by SOS Africa would have little hope of securing any education at all.
The only government schools available to the african children have average classes sizes of between 100 to 200 children per class. For the children of more developed societies, education is something that is taken for granted and is often seen as a burden, whereas for many african children it is a lifelong dream. With your help and support of an african child, SOS Africa can make these dreams a reality.
The unique thing about supporting a child through SOS Africa, is that we ensure that a strong line of communication is maintained between the sponsor and their african child. The level of involvement is entirely up to you, we will happily send you school reports, photo albums and letters from the african child you are sponsoring, so that you can share their life changing experiences, as they grow and develop as a direct result of your ongoing support.

If you wish to sponsor a child through SOS Africa, you have two options:
Option 1: Sponsor a Child's Education
By chosing this option, you will be paying for the school fees of an SOS Africa child. This will cost £240 ($395) per year (£20 or $32 per month). This money will ensure that the child supported receives a high standard of education at one of the schools attended by the SOS Africa children. In return (upon request), we are happy to send you the child's quarterly school reports to keep you updated on his or her progress.
Option 2: Sponsor a Child's Complete Education and Care
Alternatively, option two allows you to sponsor the complete education and care of an SOS Africa child. This will cost £600 ($980) per year (£50 or $82 per month). This money will ensure that the child supported receives the following:
- A high standard of education at one of the schools attended by the SOS Africa children.
- Aftercare support every afternoon, after school (including extra maths lessons and student mentoring).
- Weekly swimming lessons.
- All of the necessary school clothing and equipment required.
- Transportation to and from school.
- Any necessary medical care.
In return (upon request), we are happy to send you the child's quarterly school reports to keep you updated on his or her progress, as well as photo albums, and messages from the child. Your level of involvement is entirely up to you.
