How to Support a Childs Education
Sponsor a child or make a one off or monthly donation
Children of the Dump offer a variety of ways you can be involved. Sponsor a child and transform the life of an individual boy or girl and ensure their education. Or make regular charity donations or one off donations channeling support to areas of utmost urgency.
As a sponsor, you'll forge a meaningful connection. You'll receive captivating photos, heartfelt handwritten messages, and regular updates directly from the child's community, keeping you closely connected to the impact of your generosity.
Make a Regular Monthly Donation of an amount that suits you that helps all the children with the ESSENTIALS programme.
Sponsor an Individual Child
There are young children looking for their place in education to be sponsored today. Sponsors are welcome from anywhere in the world.
One off Donation
You can make a One off Single Payment donation if a Regular Monthly Donation is not right for you.

Child Sponsorship Programmes
Our 3 sponsorship programmes are about schooling for children and transforming children's lives through education. This helps save children from poverty and become adults able to lead full and independent lives away from the cycle of poverty around the Dump.
When you sponsor a child you’ll receive photos, handwritten messages and regular updates from their community.
Cashew Early Years
Cashew Early Years supports children aged 4 to 6 in their schooling for 2 years, giving them a head start out of poverty with vital Early Years school education.
The outreach sponsorship programme is for students who remain living with family, but without help could end up working on the Payatas dump in Manila.
Mango Tree House
A residential home for up to 50 disadvantaged children rescued from extreme poverty, for some of them Mango is the only family they have known.

Letters & gifts for the children you sponsor
You are invited (but do not have to) send birthday and Christmas cards to your child in our regular parcels to Manila. If you want to send a gift we ask that you make a bank payment to us in the UK, £10 is a good amount, and we transfer that to the Philippines. Your sponsored child gets to spend that locally. Please note that it can take a couple of months to get cards to your child.
