Céad Míle Fáilte

You can give a child living in extreme poverty a brighter future by becoming their sponsor. Our world-class programme gives kids a safe place to play, the chance to go to school and the opportunity to see a doctor when they’re sick.

Over time, you'll be able to see the difference you're making through your letters and photo updates.

CHILD FOCUSED

We make sure children are known, loved and protected.

We work in partnership with local churches because they understand their communities better than anyone.
