Jane Clare from Dublin is currently sponsoring 17-year old Mary from Kenya, but her relationship with Plan stretches back to 2006, during which time she has sponsored children in Bangladesh, Cambodia and Zimbabwe, joined our board (new retired) and visited our programmes many times.
Sponsorship makes me feel of some use. I mean so often we feel that we can do nothing, we feel that there’s you know just this enormous problem out there of hungry children, children without education. We see refugees we see what life is like and we often feel powerless to do anything about it. But I think as a sponsor you feel that you can do something useful.
Time and time again Jane has been impressed by Plan international’s commitment to putting children at the heart of everything it does.
Plan is constantly looking to improve and yes, as a sponsor, I’m completely committed to it and I think Plan does a great job.
