Olivier, meet 14-year-old Catalina. She lives in Nepal, where 15 million girls each year are married before their 15th birthday. More than half of Nepal’s child brides can’t read a single sentence. Without important life skills, Catalina faces a future of pain and hardship.
Sponsorship is the easiest, most effective way for you to transform the lives of children like Catalina — and your gift benefits an entire community. In addition to our regular education and health programs, your sponsorship also supports so much more, including:
Community outreach about gender equality
Radio broadcasts and local events to spread awareness about the dangers of child marriage
Community clubs to teach girls about their rights and how to protect themselves
Don’t worry! If someone else should choose to sponsor Catalina before you respond, we will select another child for you from our 30 Children in 30 Days sponsorship waiting list.
Sponsorship provides access to our low-cost, high-impact programs that are the best chance for success for these children. Rather than giving money directly to your sponsored child, we combine your contributions with those of other sponsors to improve your child’s life and the lives of other local children.
