Child Sponsorship Program

    Love lives here, changed lives leave here Burdened by the highest HIV/AIDS rate in the world, orphaned and vulnerable children comprise nearly one-fifth of Swaziland’s population. Although the future looks bleak, we are making a difference by raising today’s children to be tomorrow’s leaders. Through medical care, food, clothing, housing, education and home care you can give a child the gift of a future. The goal for each child after all is not merely survival but the opportunity to thrive. By supporting our childcare program today, your support will help change a life with love. You will receive periodic updates on the exciting stories that are happening in their lives as well as academic progress and school newsletters. Be part of the transformation! You can support a child as either a Child Co-Sponsor, or a Child Total Sponsor.

You can also sponsor the further education in our Tertiary Sponsorship programme.

Our Child Sponsorship Programmes

Unlike other child sponsorship programs, Challenge Ministries’ Child Sponsorship Programme goes beyond simply supplying essentials like food, shelter and clothing. Child sponsorship ensures long-term, sustainable solutions by providing holistic care directly to children in need.
100% of all sponsorship funds go directly towards the child, providing coverage for all aspects of the child’s life: monthly medical, food, caregiver, clothing and housing, and education. Challenge Ministries’ Child Sponsorship Programme gives Swazi kids the opportunity to thrive, to just be kids and to emerge as leaders in their homes, work, community and nation. We at Challenge Ministries believe every child deserves the chance to have an education and fulfil their dreams.



Becoming a Sponsor

We are proud to share the stories of the children and the work in Bulembu and Hawane and hope you become part of the journey with us. Our goal is to update sponsors on progress on a quarterly basis and to update a sponsor’s child profile annually, on our Child Sponsorship website.
Updates that a sponsor receives include photos, information, videos.
