How to sponsor a child
...from infancy to self sufficiency
Child sponsorship is a wonderful way to bring hope and change to a child living in poverty. HEAL has three levels of child sponsorship:
Poverty Trap Sponsorship
HEAL is currently rapidly developing its Poverty Trap Project which involves supporting existing schools to provide more children from very underprivileged backgrounds with an education. HEAL believes that only through education can children avoid the cycle of poverty in India. There are currently very few of our Poverty Trap children being sponsored, so we are keen to find new sponsors.
For just £11 per month you can sponsor a child at one of our Poverty Trap projects in Guntur and Bhadrachalam. Your sponsorship will pay for a school uniform, books, stationary, a midday meal, and a contribution towards the teaching staff for children from families who could not otherwise afford it. Families requesting this kind of support are checked out by the governors of the schools to ensure that we support only the most needy cases. There are currently around 300 children at Bhadrachalam and a further 200 in Guntur requiring this level of support from HEAL.

HEAL's Children's Village near Guntur is home to about 200 orphans and severely disadvantaged children, who benefit from a loving home, meals, education and health care. For many of the children, this is their first experience of a stable and nurturing environment. You can sponsor one of these children for just £16 per month, which pays for everything they need.

Please Note: It is not always possible to guarantee sponsorship of children of a specific age or sex, and we may need to offer alternatives from either our residential or poverty trap projects if we are unable to meet a specific request. Please note, we currently have far more Poverty Trap children than residential children in need of sponsorship at this time.
Higher Education Sponsorship
Many of the children in HEAL’s care, who are growing up to become young students, would like to go on to Further Education in order to help secure their future.
Teachers within the Children’s Village School assess those pupils who they believe are capable of going on to successfully further their education. Currently, the Further Education budget is £12,000 per annum and this is likely to grow as the charity expands.
For £48 per month you can sponsor a student's education for 1-3 years at a higher educational facility.
If you would like to sponsor one of our children please download our form on the Sponsor A Child page or you can now set up a repeat payment using a credit card. Alternatively, send a quick request to our secretary, who will contact you and explain the process.
