Foster Care

Child Sponsorship Programme

Foster Care

Child sponsorship is easier than you imagine! You too can sponsor a child with the Community of Sant’Egidio.

What is foster care?

Foster careis an action of solidarity that guarantees to the minors of the poor countries and to their families an economical help, so that they may receive the primary goods, education and the medical care they need.
Foster care, therefore, puts the families in condition to take care of their children and to support the necessary expenditures for their growth, avoiding that, under the pressure of the economical difficulties, the familiar unit is disintegrated.
In September 1998 the Community of Sant’Egidio started a program of international foster care. A secretariat was created to take care of this programme to support to children.

What does it provide?

  • International foster care provides support to various aspects of the life of the child:
  • Health (medical care and purchase of medicines)
  • School (payment of school fees and of educational materials)
  • Nutrition, clothing, toys and economical support to the whole familiar unit.
  • Birth registration
