Child Sponsorship

You are here:


CFC is privileged to have a long-term partnership with UCCI (United Christian Church of India) a group based in SE India working with the most vulnerable in their society.

As well as a number of other projects, UCCI run a Child Sponsorship scheme where they care for and educate children coming from the poorest rural families. The alternative for these children is often child labour.  Children are referred to the school through local community workers, church pastors or by personal application – there is always a waiting list and always a need for more sponsors – would you help us?

For just £25 per month, your sponsorship can ensure a child grows up happy, healthy and safe, have food in their tummy and receive quality education, securing a better future for them and for future generations. All of this is delivered in a loving and safe Christian context and children also learn about faith.

When you become a sponsor, you’ll receive personal information with a photo and details on the child you’re sponsoring and their story so far.  You’ll receive annual updates telling you about their life and how they are doing in school. Over time you’ll see how your sponsor child is growing and developing.

100% of your sponsorship money goes to UCCI to help your sponsored child. The Gift Aid claimed on your donation is used to cover capital project costs for UCCI and administrative costs.

Please help us help these amazing children achieve all they can in life and see their lives transformed.
