About Opportunity House Child Sponsorship Program

"This organization shall not act solely or primarily but only incidentally,
as a distributor of relief to deprived children until they are trained,
educated and given opportunities to sustain themselves."

-Pearl S. Buck, announcing the formation of The Pearl S. Buck Foundation in 1964

Below you will see Sponsored Children from the Pearl S. Buck Foundation Philippines singing about having a "can-do" attitude thanks to their positive experiences and Pearl S. Buck International Sponsors. The confidence in these children can be noted in the words, "we can be what we want for the world to see."


Pearl S. Buck founded the Opportunity House child sponsorship program to touch the lives of children who were abandoned or discriminated against due to the circumstances of their birth. Child Sponsorship enables them to receive health care and an education. Individuals can become Child Sponsors or Champions for Children and commit to improving the lives of children and their families. A Project Partner program affords opportunities for donors to give to a specific cause in the country of their choice. Read about how we implement our child sponsorship programs.
