Sponsor a Pupil Now

Just £1 per day could completely change the life of a child in Ethiopia. 

We rely on donors to help us transform the lives of children at St George's by sponsoring their education.

By sponsoring a child, you form a unique bond and have a direct impact on their life. For just £30 a month, you will not only ensure they receive the essentials that every child deserves, you will be changing their future for the better.

Your sponsorship provides the following for a child for an entire year:

Two sets of uniform

Pair of shoes

Exercise books


Two meals a day

Regular health checks

As a sponsor, you will receive an end of year report about your child's progress, and you and your family are encouraged to enter into correspondence with them.

Please help us to make a real difference and use the power of education to transform the lives of some of the world's poorest children.
