Rebuilding opportunities in the wake of loss is transformative in crisis situations. Orphan Empowerment includes supporting orphans through orphan sponsorships that rebuild normalcy and support young children who have lost a guardian, empowering youth for the future.

NuDay's on-the-ground staff continuously monitor the situation on the ground, taking note of new households in the region. When a family relocates, our staff conducts visits to their home and learn about their situation. If an orphan be included in the household and the family qualifies as vulnerable, NuDay conducts further assessments to confirm if we should include the family in our Orphan Sponsorship program. Sponsorships ensure that families are not burdened by the orphan, heightening the likelihood of the family's continued support of the orphan.
If NuDay decides that an orphan qualifies for the program, our staff visits the orphan and completes an intake form. This form includes questions for the guardian and child, assessing the child's mental and physical health, access to education, and personality. Our team then compiles this into an Orphan Profile and stores it in our database.
Changing Futures through Sponsorship
When a supporter - like you! - starts a sponsorship, our team matches up the orphan to you immediately. Sponsors receive an orphan profile within 72 hours of starting their sponsorship, introducing them to their orphan. Every month, the sponsorship paid gets distributed to the orphan's guardian. During these visits, NuDay's staff ensures that the orphan is able to attend school and has their basic needs (like food and clothing!) met.
Every year, you will receive an update about your orphan, letting you know about your orphan's progress in school, health, and family. Video updates are sometimes also available, depending on the family's situation, and are sent as well.
When you sponsor through NuDay, you are changing the life of a young child, ensuring that they can finally focus on being kids and heal as they rebuild their futures. What are you waiting for?
Why We Don't Publicly List Orphans
NuDay's decision to not list orphans needing sponsorship on our website is a conscious one. As an organization committed to dignified aid and empowerment, we avoid depicting beneficiaries as "people in need" - and the same goes for our orphans. We believe that everyone should have the right to dignity, and know that supporters like you agree to that. Sponsors receive detailed information on their orphan and sometimes have the chance to video chat - but in these circumstances, the interaction is more human-to-human, rather than showcasing someone in need.
At times, we do include detailed information on children through other fundraising platforms, but this is only when explicit permission is provided from the legal guardian and child.
