One Collective UK is an international partnership organisation that works across the UK and around the world supporting various communities through a model we call Integrated Community Transformation.

Our Child Sponsorship programme fits into this vision to see the whole of the community transformed. We partner with a number of organisations in different countries that want to see the lives of young people transformed in order to transform the whole community.

When you sponsor a child through our programme, we ensure that your donation reaches the partner organisation. By sponsoring a child you will ensure that the child you select will be supported and be able to engage in a range of programmes. Due to the nature of the programmes we support, it is not possible to ensure that every penny of your donation goes to your exact child, rather a number of our programmes support multiple children and so your donation will be used to run the projects and programmes that your child engages in.

Integrated Community Transformation

Integrated community transformation (ICT) is our core purpose. It’s a strategy to realise Jesus’ claim that the Kingdom of God is here. With Jesus, we seek to model his own ministry, focusing on the needs of the whole person.

We want to see people as Jesus does — responding to their spiritual and physical needs in an integrated way. We focus on people in the context of their community—regarding everyone from recognised leaders to those on the margins who seem invisible.

We come alongside the community to work collaboratively toward transformation. For us, communities are defined either by types of people or by geographic boundaries. We define an area where a measurable impact can be realistically seen.

Our ultimate focus is to see change that reflects Jesus. We begin by ensuring that no one is invisible and everyone has access to food, freedom, and forgiveness. Access to those holistic needs opens the door for deep transformation.
