How does child sponsorship help?
By sponsoring a child with us today you can give them the chance to learn, play, laugh and grow up in a child-friendly environment.

How does child sponsorship work?
As a child sponsor, you give a monthly donation. This money does not go directly to the child or their family. It supports the project where your sponsored child is enrolled.

Our Target


Chime was originally established as the National Association for Deaf back in 1964. It is a great testimony to the original founders, who’s vision of promoting a better life and a better society for people who are Deaf or have a Hearing Loss, that this organisation has stood the test of time and is still as relevant now as it was almost 60 years ago.
