Why Sponsor A Child ?
In 30 countries, fewer than 90 females for every 100 males complete lower-secondary school.
More than 50% of young people in 58 out of 133 countries have not completed upper secondary school.
Fewer than 50% of the poorest children have completed primary school. In some countries like South Sudan, that figure is as low as 7%.
Fewer than 25% of children in rural areas attend a pre-primary program like kindergarten.
In 35 out of 75 countries, at least 25% of the poorest young women are illiterate.
There is a need across the world, and we want to do something to help
How Does My $36/Month
The remaining funds will go towards the community where your sponsored child and his or her family live.
Your child sponsorship gift will cover your sponsored child’s tuition, books, school uniforms.
Many government schools in the countries WorldHarvest is working to help the needy children, the education for school-age children is not free.
WorldHarvest community programs do not only benefit one or a few sponsored children in that community but also the entire community.
Your gift enables vulnerable children and families to have access to clean water, or regular medical or dental checkup, and many other needs.

Thanks to our sponsors Randy Brewer and Brewer Direct, Inc., Alvin has been able to attend school in Kamuli, a district in Uganda, East Africa. Randy has been a WorldHarvest donor for 5 years and his company, Brewer Direct, Inc. has also been sponsoring Alvin for 3 years. Randy, who is from Monrovia, California, was so touched by his Sponsorship that he personally visited Alvin in October, 2019.

Randy, who is from Monrovia, California, was so touched by his Sponsorship that he personally visited Alvin in October, 2019. Here's a short excerpt from his personal account of the trip.
“Mr. Joseph Ndjoli, our East Africa director for WorldHarvest chauffeured me from Kampala to Kamuli, a nearly three hour drive. We met up with Mr. James Katula, also one of the WorldHarvest leaders in Kamuli. He works most closely with Alvin, the sponsored child, and his family and he directed us on the dirt (and eventually mud) road to the small village area where Alvin and his parents and siblings live. The muddy road grounded us both ways, coming and going. This was an interesting challenge but the local neighbors helped dig us out (getting covered in mud).
Alvin met me as we parked near his house, as did his father and one older brother. I gave him a soccer ball to enjoy with his friends and a new backpack with a couple of school supplies. We talked about his school (he speaks quietly in English) and sports. Alvin walked me outside and brought out the cow “Gift” that Brewer Direct raised money to buy for the family a year ago. And even better the cow had a calf which they named “Grace” and is pregnant with another. So this gift is giving milk as well as expanding their cow family. They made lunch for our small delegation, helped wash the van (which unfortunately got buried in mud again on the way out) and we visited the small church they are building for the village (Alvin’s dad is pastor)."
