The power to choose in a child's hands.

A new invitation to child sponsorship.

Some kids wait years to be chosen by sponsors. But what would happen if, instead, they got to choose? For the first time, the power to choose is in a child’s hands. The power to take hold of their future, to initiate change in their own lives, and to transform their community.
