Sponsor a Child in Africa
Sponsoring a child through SOS Africa is a unique and life changing experience, not only for the child but also the sponsor. We strongly believe that by empowering African children through education, you enable them to break the cycle of poverty into which they are born.

Without the help of our sponsors, the children supported by our African charity would have little hope of securing a substantial education; often the only government schools available to these children have large class sizes, limited resources and poorly trained teachers. For children from more developed societies, education is something that can often be taken for granted, but for many African children it is a lifelong dream; by sponsoring an African child through SOS Africa, together we can make these dreams a reality.

Unlike larger African charities, SOS Africa is a UK based, family-run, grass roots organisation. This personal approach enables us to tailor our sponsorship programme to meet the needs of both the sponsor and the African child they are supporting. Whether you are an individual, a group of friends, a business or a school looking to sponsor a child in Africa, SOS Africa provides...
- A Personal Approach – The charity is run by a close group of family and friends.
- A Holistic Education Programme - Including school tuition, aftercare support, transport, clothing and stationery.
- Regular Progress Reports - Maintaining strong lines of communication between child, organisation and sponsor.
- Minimal Charity Expenses – 100% of your donation will be invested in the education & care of the SOS Africa children. UK Expenses are covered by Gift Aid.
SOS Africa Child Sponsorship Options...
Option 1: Sponsoring the Education and Care of a child in South Africa for £50 per month provides an underprivileged child with a holistic education package including school tuition, after-school care, stationery, transport and additional support when required. In return the sponsor will receive regular feedback including school reports, photos, SOS Africa Children's Blog and social media updates. Sponsors can also write emails to the child and visit them at a later stage in the sponsorship.

In return, the sponsor will receive regular feedback including school reports, photos, blog and social media updates. All other aspects of the holistic education provided to the child by the SOS Africa Education Programme will be funded by an additional sponsor.
