Family activity hub

Teaching kids about charity and global issues can be a great way to start a conversation about the importance of empathy, compassion and giving back to help others. It can also be a helpful way to build awareness of our shared world and all those who live within it: with all our commonalities, despite the unique realities and difficulties we face.

Involving whole families in the process of Child Sponsorship helps empower a child from around the world, while also creating meaningful chances to connect with one another. These connections can also help the children in your life learn more about different regions of the planet and their interesting characteristics, and also distinct challenges.

Below, you can find basic activities on weather and animals for younger children, and more complex topics like rights and poverty to navigate with older youth. These teachable moments can be made more accessible via the activity hub: offering simple to more advanced and interactive jump-off points to spark thought and initial discussions about our planet and the importance of equality.

Learning games are a powerful way of entertaining little ones while also delivering critical awareness opportunities for talking to children about charity and global issues. That’s why we’re inviting you to try these activities and educational games for kids of all ages with your family, which we’ll continue to update over time.

From children’s rights to geography to animals, it’s never too early to start a conversation and learn about our diverse world, including the children and creatures that call it home, and our many varied experiences. So, why not start today!
