Climb for our Orphan Sponsorship Programme

Human Appeal has been helping sponsor orphans for 30 years, and are currently sponsoring over 19,000 children across nine different countries. One sponsorship can transform a whole future, and by helping our programme you can rest easy knowing you’re putting the child’s needs first.

All our work is overseen by our child protection specialist, who ensures children are never put at risk. In order to qualify, orphans must remain in school, safeguarding their education and giving them the academic tools to support themselves once they become young adults.
