OneChild announces a milestone to celebrate as the 50,000th child was just enrolled into its child sponsorship program. The child, from Zimbabwe, is named Delight.

Dr. Scott Todd, President at OneChild, says, “OneChild is a global community that celebrates, and this milestone, reaching Delight, is a source of tremendous celebration. We knew we were getting close to 50,000, but we didn’t know who it would be, and so when we found out her name is Delight, I just felt like God was whispering, ‘well done,’ to encourage us and give us a smile.”

But OneChild isn’t stopping with 50,000 kids. Leaders at OneChild have charted a strategic course to help more by using innovative new ways to connect sponsors to children. OneChild is supporting Bridgely, a platform to transform child sponsorship as it helps foster and grow intercultural generosity and healthy relationships across cultures.
