SPONSOR A CHILD all year round.
We offer different opportunities for you to sponsor a child in either Guatemala and help make a difference all year round.
For many years Radio Christmas and Street Kids Direct have partnered with Global Care in the UK to provide a sponsor a child scheme. All the children in the scheme are vulnerable children in the mentoring programme in Guatemala. Your monthly support will not only provide a child with all the care they need, but also a full-time education, counseling, a caring mentor to meet with them each week, medical checks and urgent medical help as well as access to a mentoring centre where they can enjoy being children. Global Care will provide you with an updated photo of your sponsored child, regular letters, reports and information to help you keep in touch with your child and see the progress she or he is making.
£22 month SPONSOR A CHILD
Your monthly support will help provide a vulnerable child with all they need to navigate a difficult childhood. Your sponsored child will receive a full-time education, a caring mentor in their life, medical and dental checks and daily access to the mentoring centre.
We work in partnership with GLOBAL CARE who have always dealt with our child sponsorship programme and provide sponsors with regluar updates, letters, reports and photos.

£15 month SPONSOR THE PROTECTION HOME
Street Kids Direct has a short-term protection home in Guatemala City for children in need of extra support and care. GLOBAL CARE help fund the running costs of the home through the Project Partner scheme. For just £15 a month you will join others in sponsoring the cost of a bed in the home and will then receive information throughout the year about who benefitted from staying in that bed.
The Protection Home is a safe haven for many at-risk children. For some, only a night or a few days of extra support or proection are needed. For others a stay of up to two weeks is possible or we offer to the children in the mentoring programme a reward scheme to have sleepovers in the home with their friends for good school grades and conduct.
