About us

Child sponsorships- Mondo Nuovo Onlus is an Association that promotes aid projects. Since its foundation in 1990, around 1200 sponsorships have been subscribed each year for children in Brazil, Eritrea, Etiopia, Lebanon, Peru, Tanzania and Togo. In addition, important projects have been completed, as documented on the Association's website.

How we operate

The Association:
  • thanks to the generous help of its volunteers, supports all efforts in favour of the child sponsorships and of the aid projects
  • collaborates with the religious and lay missions that operate in the countries of the sponsored children
  • supports specific cooperation projects such as the construction of a school, a shelter home, a health care facility, a workshop, or a well.
Donations received by the Association are sent directly to the Missionaries who, living locally, are able to guarantee that they are used carefully and correctly. They do this by providing up-to-date information, arranging regular visits to the Association, and by assisting those who wish to visit the sponsored children.

A small percentage of the money paid for the sponsorships -not more than 5%- is retained:
  • for organisational and administrative expenses
  • to replace any unpaid sponsorship quotas to ensure that the children concerned can complete the current school year


Child sponsorship is a form of solidarity which confers the status of godfather/ godmother on the sponsor of a child living in poverty, who is thereby guaranteed the primary necessities of life (food, medical assistance, clothing and education). When you sponsor a child your contribution also helps the child's family and the comunity in which he lives, through projects designed to fight poverty. Anyone can sponsor a child: families, couples, individuals, groups of schoolchildren or of friends, companies.
