Having a sponsor makes an immeasurable difference to a child and his or her family and there is always a waiting list of children needing to be sponsored.

Sponsors pay £14 a month. £8 goes to the family for the child’s welfare and £6 is kept in a savings account for the more expensive years ahead when the child moves onto further education. Our sponsors find this ongoing relationship with a child half a world away gives great pleasure as they watch their ‘child’ grow up.

For many sponsors there is the added pleasure of seeing the young person leave school and go on to university or other further education. Education has changed their lives and they can now look forward to a better future. Fifty five of our sponsored children are now at university, other further education or doing post grad degrees. A further 12 young people who were not sponsored have been awarded university scholarships by VMT supporters on the basis of academic ability, good character and economic need. In June 18 will be leaving school and seeking to further their education. Thirty five have already graduated and are now enjoying stimulating and well paid jobs.
