Child Sponsorship

Rainbow Family

Child Sponsorship

Welcome to the biggest family in the world!

With over 5,700 children supported across 17 countries in Europe, Africa, Middle East and Asia.

We believe every child has the right to a nourishing upbringing, safe from harm, with access to education, healthcare and the emotional support needed to develop the potential found in each of us. Children supported will grow up to become responsible members of society, contributing considerably to their country’s growth and poverty alleviation. 

With 10 years of experience and skilled teams around the globe; the Rainbow Family Programme aims to improve a life from childhood into the early years of adulthood. As we continue on this journey to support children around the world, we invite you to join us in making a change and laying the foundations for a brighter future.

What is unique about the Rainbow Family Programme?

  • We are credible. With our global portfolio of 17 countries and over 100 skilled staff and mentors, we’ve dedicated the last 10 years to refining our programme.
  • We are cutting edge. Our programme continually evolves; we have gone beyond financial help by providing support for social and emotional development. While also ensuring children are integrated into other development projects such as livelihood and seasonal programmes.
  • We communicate. We recognise the importance of donor - child communication and encourage this as an important aspect of a child’s sponsorship.


What can you expect from us?

At Muslim Aid, we want your experience of sponsoring a child to be truly amazing. When you sponsor a child with us, two lives are changed; a child’s and yours.  We take special care of our donors by providing the best service possible. Here is what you can expect from us:

  • A Welcome Pack at the start of the sponsorship. This includes details of the child you are supporting, a photo and profile, and lots of information on the how the programme works.  You’ll also get a postcard to help you start writing to your sponsored child.
  • Annual Updates which can include the child’s school reports, letters/drawings and photos.
  • An annual newsletter showcasing the stories and achievements of the programme.

From as little £25 a month your sponsorship can make a child’s dream come true
