Guardian Angels are a vital part of our humanitarian work

They are special donors who give by regular direct debit to help us with the essential  costs of caring for the most impoverished children.

They help us provide the fundamentals, the everyday needs of our children including food, medicine and educational supplies that are crucial for keeping all our children in school, safe, well and learning through the whole year.

At our schools in the Philippines, Guatemala, Tanzania, Mexico and Honduras it costs just £10 to feed and clothe a child for a week. In the hands of the Sisters our funds go a very long way. The children reuse and recycle and under the supervision of the Sisters they make their own uniforms and sports kit and grow much of their own food, but with almost 20,000 growing boys and girls the weekly food bill is large!

See the difference your regular gift will make.

As a Guardian Angel your gifts are given by direct debit

This helps us keep costs low and allows your generous gift to get to work faster and go further for the children in our care. It helps us to plan and ensure that we can care for our children now and welcome new children in the future.

The girls and boys at our schools cherish this support and send regular Guardian Angel updates on their progress at school as well as providing a beautiful Guardian Angel pin for our Guardian Angel donors to wear as a reminder of the special part they play.

Will you help us support more children out of poverty, by becoming one of our special Guardian Angels today?
