Distance sponsorships allows children in developing countries to go to school, take care of themselves and live a life with dignity, staying in their own village and with their families.

“You can’t claim your rights if you don’t know about their existence!”

Sostieni a distanza un bambino e il suo villaggio is a distance sponsorship campaign of children from Senegal, Gambia and India promoted by Energia per i Diritti Umani ONLUS since 2002.

Sponsoring a child at a distance through the project Sostieni a distanza un bambino e il suo villaggio costs 30 euros per month, just under 1 euro per day!

 

What do we guarantee the sponsored child?

50% of your contribution will be used to support your child’s education and health and, depending on the country and the context where we will be operating, we guarantee:

  • Enrolment fee and school fees;
  • Educational material: backpacks, notebooks, books, pens, pencils, etc.
  • School uniforms;
  • Teachers’ and helpers’ salaries if the children attend the nursery schools run by the association;
  • Learning games and educational materials for children who attend nursery schools;
  • Snacks (only in the facilities where it is allowed);
  • Medical treatments (preventive examinations and specialist examinations in the event of illness);
  • Insecticide-treated mosquito nets to prevent malaria.

How do we support villages development?

30% of the amount paid will be used for community development projects in the village where the child lives. This amount of money is used to:

  • Build facilities where to establish multifunctional humanist centres, that function as nursery schools in the morning, and host literacy, professional training, hygiene courses, etc… in the afternoon.
  • Support health or educational projects;
  • Purchase materials for vocational training courses, etc.
  • Train local volunteers and pay for their travel expenses.

 

Organisational expenses

The remaining 20% of the amount paid will be used by the association to pay for management, notices, travel and training expenses of Italian volunteers.

Thanks to this campaign, the association enables an increasing number of children to go to school on a continuous basis, to take care of themselves and to live a life with dignity, remaining in their own country and with their families.

Not only does the project Sostieni a distanza un bambino e il suo villaggio aim to improve the life of the individual child, but also the life of the whole community by promoting community projects, such as the creation of nursery schools and permanent training centres for the entire village (i.e. the Multifunctional Humanist Centres).
