For the cost of  £15 a month / £180 per annum sponsorship changes and transforms the life of a family in Sri Lanka and also enriches the life of the Sponsor. We currently have 142 children who are benefitting from our sponsorship programmes. Sometimes our Ocean Stars Trip volunteers also happen to be our sponsors.  Julie who has been on 4 volunteer trips reflects on meeting Rimsa her sponsor child:

It's been a blessing to be able to meet Rimsha and her family on different trips to Sri Lanka. This time, after a 4 year break, it was noticeable that Rimsha and her siblings had grown up so much, her sister was just a baby last time I saw them. Rimsha shared with us that school is going well and when she grows up she would like to be a doctor. Her Mum told us they appreciate the support with school resources and tuition. A relatively small amount each month makes such a difference, it's such a straightforward way to help.
