Foreign Sponsorship Program

Foreign Children Sponsorship Program

According to the report of UNICEF, 1 billion children worldwide are multi-dimensionally poor – without access to education, health, housing, nutrition, sanitation, or water. 356 million children live in extreme poverty, forced to survive on less than $1.90 a day Children are more likely to live in poverty than adults. They’re also more vulnerable to its effects.

Since its inception in July 1987, TFCF has been committed to making a global impact through its "Foreign Children Sponsorship Program" and active participation in overseas aid activities. As part of our efforts, we have established several overseas branch offices to extend our reach and provide dedicated support. In 2004, we launched our first overseas branch office, TFCF Mongolia, followed by six more offices in Kyrgyzstan (2012), Eswatini (2013), Vietnam (2014), Cambodia (2015), Jordan (2018), and the Philippines (2019). Through these branch offices, we bring our expertise in social work and leverage Taiwan's experience to deliver effective and tailored services in the respective countries. We are continuously expanding and refining our services overseas to ensure a positive and lasting impact on the lives of children and families in need.

TFCF operates two sponsorship programs to support children and communities abroad:

1. Foreign Children Sponsorship Program

2. Foreign Community Sponsorship Program


The Foreign Children Sponsorship Program (兒童認養) focuses on providing support and assistance to disadvantaged children in various countries. Through this program, individuals, families, or organizations can sponsor a child by providing financial contributions regularly. These funds are utilized to meet the child's basic needs, including education, healthcare, nutrition, and other essential services. Sponsors have the opportunity to build a meaningful relationship with the sponsored child through correspondence and updates on their progress. The program aims to give these children a chance for a brighter future and to break the cycle of poverty. Currently, the Foreign Children Sponsorship Program is available in all of the oversea branches.


The Foreign Community Sponsorship Program (社區認養) aims to uplift and develop communities in need outside of Taiwan. Through this program, individuals, businesses, or organizations can sponsor a specific community or contribute to the overall development of multiple communities. The funds and resources provided through sponsorship are utilized to address specific needs identified within the community, such as infrastructure improvements, educational initiatives, healthcare services, vocational training, and other community development projects. By actively engaging with the community and working collaboratively with local stakeholders, TFCF aims to create sustainable and impactful changes that enhance the well-being of the community as a whole. Currently, the Foreign Community Sponsorship Program is available in Vietnam, Jordan, and Eswatini. Through these partnerships, TFCF is making a meaningful difference in the lives of individuals and families, promoting long-term community development and fostering a brighter future for all.


By participating in either the Foreign Children Sponsorship Program or the Foreign Community Sponsorship Program, sponsors have the opportunity to make a positive difference in the lives of children and communities abroad. Through their support, they contribute to breaking the cycle of poverty, promoting education, improving healthcare services, and fostering community development. Together with TFCF, sponsors play a crucial role in creating a brighter future for children and communities in need around the world.
