How do I sponsor a child?

Sponsor a child, and your monthly gift supports their education, and hope to a child and the community. When you sponsor a child, know you are changing the life a a child born into poverty.

  1. Sponsor a child whose photo resonate with you.  The need is endless
  2. When you sponsor a child  your sponsorship donation is pooled with other sponsors to fund programs that benefit all children.
  3. Sponsors who have the flexibility and resources can arrange a visit to meet their child.
  4. Please note we have strict guidelines and limited resources and can change the child your sponsor due to a number of circumstances.

By sponsoring a child, you get to watch the impact of your donation on both that child and their school.

What is child sponsorship?

Child sponsorship helps a child receive a quality education. When you sponsor a child, you help provide essentials like  a quality education. All with the goal of helping your sponsored child and their community break free from poverty for good.

Why sponsor a child?

Sponsoring a child is the most personal, effective way to fight poverty. When you sponsor a child you can build a special relationship that encourages your child with hope for the future. Plus, your donations join forces with other sponsors to lift your  children in the community out of poverty for good.

Why sponsor a child through TSF?

Sponsoring a child with the Tanzania School Foundation is unique because we look at all the things that prevent children from surviving and thriving in their community.   

You can exchange letters and photos, and even visit your sponsored child, but we don’t just give sponsored children cash every month. Instead, we pool monthly sponsorship donations and leverage them for maximum impact and pay school fees for a group of children.

How much does it cost to sponsor a child?

The cost to sponsor a child in pre-school with TSF is $100 per month. We stretch your dollar as far as possible to help lift both your child and their entire community out of poverty. In fact, for every child sponsored, three others in the community are helped!

What is the best child sponsor organization?

The Tanzania School Foundation supports a small rural community in Tanzania by sending children to School.  We also sponsor older children whom we have had a long ongoing relationship with who cannot afford a quality education.  

How long is my child sponsorship commitment?

While you can cancel at any time, you may continue sponsoring a child for as long as your child remains in the program.   We have a strict policy on who can receive your scholarship.  Please understand when you cancel your monthly donation, it has an impact on the number of students we can support.  

The cost of educating a child:

We have so many children qualifying for sponsorships but not enough resources to help them all. Please consider supporting education to a child born into poverty
