Sponsorship is provided to students who cannot support their education independently due to financial crises. There are various agencies and organizations that Sponsor a student’s education by empowering and supporting them in times of crises. The sponsoring agencies in this case looks for potential donors who can sponsor education for a long or  shot term. With the help of this money, students can get access to primary, secondary, high and even university level education.
Furthermore, through various Sponsoring programs, a student can get reliable and independent in the later years of his or her life. Therefore, students can get sustainable financial support for their education. One of the earliest child Sponsorship charities was Children International, which was established in 1936.

Working of the Sponsoring Agency

Initially, the Sponsoring agency chooses those students who needs to be Sponsored and then their profiles are sent to the relevant Sponsors. Afterwards, it is the responsibility of the agency to transfer money of the Sponsors to the Sponsored student and to manage each and every communication between them.

However, the working of a charity highly varies from each other. As some agencies work through a community development program and the others have a more individualized approach. Moreover, many agencies use the funds for community development programs and  do not keep direct relation with students, while some use the funds directly for students and help them with education personally. In most of the cases, students benefit from community development programs such as funded schools, health programs, free of cost uniforms, free meals, medical store, etc.


In order to be a Sponsored student various agencies follow some basic eligibility criteria. Few of which include,
  • Being an orphan
  • Belonging to a low income family
  • Having an interest for studies, and
  • Exploring more options into the educational field 
Henceforth, the basic goal of the Sponsoring agencies is to support a child and the family in order to break the cycle of poverty, and help them to be self dependent individuals throughout their life. And this goal is usually in support of all the children, despite their religion, race, caste, ethnic background or gender. In this case, students do not only get the benefits of education but all round development as well.

Therefore, students who cannot afford their education and development independently, belong to low income families or do not have parents, can avail this opportunity. Sponsorship as an educational fund will help them to progress well in life and support their education throughout.
