SPONSOR A CHILD all year round.

We offer different opportunities for you to sponsor a child in either Guatemala and help make a difference all year round.

For many years Radio Christmas and Street Kids Direct have partnered with Global Care in the UK to provide a sponsor a child scheme.  All the children in the scheme are vulnerable children in the mentoring programme in Guatemala.  Your monthly support will not only provide a child with all the care they need, but also a full-time education, counseling, a caring mentor to meet with them each week, medical checks and urgent medical help as well as access to a mentoring centre where they can enjoy being children.  Global Care will provide you with an updated photo of your sponsored child, regular letters, reports and information to help you keep in touch with your child and see the progress she or he is making.

Your monthly support will help provide a vulnerable child with all they need to navigate a difficult childhood.  Your sponsored child will receive a full-time education, a caring mentor in their life, medical and dental checks and daily access to the mentoring centre.

We work in partnership with GLOBAL CARE who have always dealt with our child sponsorship programme and provide sponsors with regluar updates, letters, reports and photos.  When you sponsor a child in Guatemala you will begin to make a personal connection with a child and see how your child progresses and benefits from your friendship and support.  Just click on the button below and select "Guatemala".  For those in the US or Guatemala wishing to sponsor a child in your country, please do contact us here for more information.

Street Kids Direct has a short-term protection home in Guatemala City for children in need of extra support and care. GLOBAL CARE help fund the running costs of the home through the Project Partner scheme.  For just £15 a month you will join others in sponsoring the cost of a bed in the home and will then receive information throughout the year about who benefitted from staying in that bed.

The Protection Home is a safe haven for many at-risk children.  For some, only a night or a few days of extra support or proection are needed.  For others a stay of up to two weeks is possible or we offer to the children in the mentoring programme a reward scheme to have sleepovers in the home with their friends for good school grades and conduct.

Street Kids Direct have been able to support more children than ever this year to get into and stay in school.

These two boys needed trainers in order to get the points needed in school to pass their end-of-year grade.

Both boys live in an area of Guatemala City that is classified as a slum and have limited resources, which means many children drop out of school at an early age and either end up on the streets or have to start work.

Thanks to your support more children will be helped in 2020.

You can now enjoy non-stop Christmas music all year round from Radio Christmas.


Thanks to the generous support of Radio Christmas listeners in 2018 we have been able to help support the opening of a short-term Protection Home in Guatemala City for vulnerable children.

The home, named Casa Alexis, will now be able to care for children, young people and families who are at risk and can be rescued from the streets or those children in the mentoring programme who need some short-term support and help.
