Meet our Ambassadors

We all have a role to play.
Our Ambassadors, our supporters and you.
Together, we are Plan International Ireland.


Nobel Peace Prize winner John Hume and his wife Pat have been sponsoring children through Plan International since 2004. For 11 years, John and Pat sponsored a boy called  Juan in El Salvador. In 2015, they began sponsoring a nine year old girl, called Kouka, from Burkina Faso.

Plan International Ireland does some fantastic work with poor children and I urge you to support them. I’m honoured to be Plan International Ireland’s Patron and I hope you will join us and be part of it.
