Sponsor an Orphan in Gambia

Sponsor a child for just 50p a day and help build a brighter future for children in Gambia!

The Prophet (saw) was reported to have said:

The one who cares for an orphan and myself will be together in Paradise like this,” and he held his two fingers together to illustrate.

The Situation is Desperate

With thousands of children orphaned by AIDs, severe malnutrition and malaria, the situation in Gambia is desperate. Orphaned girls are particularly vulnerable to sexual abuse and trafficking, whilst many other orphans must turn to child labour to survive. 
At Penny Appeal, we believe that every child deserves a happy, healthy childhood and the opportunity to build a brighter future. Sponsor a child in Gambia and help make that vision a reality.
Your sponsorship helps provide nutritious meals, clothes, healthcare, an education and a dedicated guardian for an orphan or vulnerable child in Gambia – all in a loving and caring home.
For just 50p a day, you can sponsor an orphan in Gambia, and give a vulnerable child the chance to break out of poverty and build a better future for themselves.

OrphanKind Welcome Pack


When you sponsor a child in Gambia, you'll receive a welcome pack so you can get to know your sponsored child a little better. Every year we'll send you two feedback reports so you can see exactly how your support is transforming a child’s life for the better.

It's a beautiful gift to care for a child, so please sponsor an orphan in Gambia today!


Build an Orphan Home in Gambia


We don’t like to use the word orphanage. Orphanages conjure up Victorian workhouses serving gruel for dinner… our orphan homes are nothing like that.

They are real homes, with dedicated foster mothers, nutritious meals, new clothes, healthcare and access to the best education in the area.

Help us build a new orphan home in Gambia and you'll provide a safe, loving home for countless vulnerable children for years to come.


Malan's Story

“My name is Malan and I live in the Gambia. I write to say thank you to my sponsor for looking after me. I am happy with my new friends in my new school. I am happy because of you. I want to say thank you."

Without Penny Appeal's OrphanKind, Malan would be living a very different life.  Find out more about Malan.
