Baptist World Aid - Amongst the Best Child Sponsorship Programs for Effecting Real Change

As a long-time child sponsorship charity in Australia, we have already seen the power of sponsoring a child and what it can do for community development for those in the greatest need. Through child-centred community development works, such as helping to build and maintain educational facilities, protection facilities, and run life skills training such as kitchen gardening.

As a Christian child sponsorship organisation in Australia, we are committed to sponsor children in a responsible manner that is in line with our Christian values. You can read more about how we make this happen on our 'Child Sponsorship FAQs' page. When you sponsor a child online through this site, you're not just making a promise to give them the foundations of a strong community in which to grow and thrive - you're committing to helping them to know God's love in the most real way possible.

Through Baptist World Aid, you can sponsor a child in one of the following countries:

  • Bangladesh
  • Cambodia
  • Malawi
  • Nepal
  • Philippines
  • Sri Lanka
  • Uganda
  • Zambia

We encourage potential sponsors to consider which part of the world needs their love most. Whilst African child sponsorship may have a high profile, there are children in many other countries who have been waiting a long time to be connected with the sponsorship they need.

We hope this site answers your most important questions on how to sponsor a child, such as "how much does it cost to sponsor a child?", and "what will the money be used for?". Should you have any further queries, you can contact Baptist World Aid on 1300 789 991 or email hello@baptistworldaid.org.au.
