Sponsor a Child

We appreciate so much your interest in sponsoring a child through New Life Foundation.  

The current cost of sponsorship is NZD 70.00 per month (for New Zealand sponsors), NOK 300 per month (Norwegian sponsors) and USD 67.00 per month (USA sponsors).  This monthly payment covers 24 hour care of each student including: accommodation, 4 meals a day, clothing and school uniforms, textbooks, medical care, stationery and hygiene supplies etc.  We realise this cost is higher than other aid organisations, however most of these agencies provide just one meal a day and schooling as opposed to the NLF full time wholistic care of each child.  

Shared sponsorship is also available - please contact your local NLF office for further details (click here).

Our process around sponsorship is as follows:

1. Please chose a child/children that you are interested in sponsoring from the list below and make a note of their name.
Contact your local NLF office (click here) with the details of the child you wish to sponsor and they will process your request and setup your details.  The local NLF office will then get back to you with confirmation.
3. If you simply wish to make a one off Donation - please click here.
