By becoming a child sponsor, you guarantee a child – and all children in their community – have everything they need to grow, learn and plan for their futures.


Child sponsorship helps tackle the root causes of discrimination, exclusion and vulnerability, and support some of the world’s most vulnerable children to thrive.

Key Challenges for children in Senegal


  • With more than half of Senegal’s population living on less than US$2 a day, life is a struggle for millions of men, women and children.
  • In Senegal, few children complete school – 38% of men and 61% of women cannot read and write.
  • Child marriage is widely accepted – one in three girls is married by the time they’re 18.
  • Many children die of preventable or treatable diseases –- each year 30,000 don’t live to see their fifth birthday.
