Sponsor a Child
When you sponsor a child, you are showing that you care for them and are rooting for their success every step of the way. Start your sponsorship for $50/month today and help empower a child to build their future.
Arwa is five years old this year. This sweet girl loves to play and spends much of her day entertaining herself. Her favorite person in the world is her Tete (her grandma!), since Tete always knows so much about the world and likes to tell Arwa stories about her family and parents.
Arwa lost her father in 2017, before she was born. Her mother struggles to support her, and is worried that she will not be able to send Arwa to school once she is old enough.
Your sponsorship is needed to help Arwa finally fulfill her dream of attending school and building her future.
Arwa has some health issues (enlarged adenoids) that require additional support.
To sponsor for $50/month, click "Sponsor Now" and add the name to "Child Name" field. Each child has one sponsor, unless otherwise noted. NuDay will reach out if the child has already been sponsored to assign you to another equally deserving child.
Hobbies: Playing with her Tete (grandmother)!
Biggest dream: To go to school!

What is the best organization for sponsorship?The best organization to sponsor through depends on your priorities and aims. There are many organizations that offer sponsorship, all of which you can research on Charity Navigator. NuDay's vision is to secure dignified and empowered aid so that vulnerable children, their families, and their communities can focus on building independent futures. We see all individuals as capable of creating their own empowered futures, and are simply helping to encourage through closing the gap and supporting vulnerabilities along the way. This also means that we want sponsors to feel connected to their sponsored children, so we provide detailed information and videos on a regular basis. If this resonates with you, then you're likely to agree that NuDay will be the best organization for you to sponsor through.
How long will I be able to sponsor the same child?Sponsorship is a long-term commitment; however, the length of each sponsorship depends on the needs of the individual and the circumstances on the ground. NuDay does our best to maintain long sponsorships in order to secure stability for the sponsored individual and for you, as the sponsor! In a few cases, sponsorship may simply be needed for the short term - such as a medical operation that is urgently required. Working in areas undergoing humanitarian conflict also means being flexible in responding to emergencies on the ground. Displacements may occur and contact may be lost; in this case, NuDay's staff attempts to locate the family and will also let you know about the situation. We also ask for your patience during emergencies when you may experience delays in correspondence. If circumstances change and your child no longer needs sponsorship, we’ll notify you and send you a new child to begin sponsoring.
Is the child "real"?Every individual that is sponsored through NuDay is real, and their vulnerabilities and needs have been validated and confirmed by our local teams. We do our best to facilitate interactions between you and your sponsored individual, and provide video updates to establish a more personal relationship.
Is sponsorship through NuDay zakat-certified?Yes, sponsorship is accepted as a zakat-certified activity. NuDay is a zakat-eligible organization, meaning your donations count towards your zakat obligation.
