Siankaba Sponsor a child

Sponsoring a child is a great way of helping them to improve their education and progress in life, in what is a harsh environment. The education gained will enable these children to pass on their knowledge and to help and inspire others as well.

These pictures are just a handful of the children who will benefit from sponsorship and, whilst you may not be able to select a particular child to sponsor, we would ensure that you are kept informed of who they are and the progress that they make.
