For every €1 we receive, Plan International Ireland spend 93c on our programmes. The rest is spent on governance and fundraising.
Emma’s is just one story. You can can choose to sponsor a child in any of the 86,466 communities where Plan International work.
The decision to sponsor is yours, as is when you want to stop or pause. We understand circumstances change.
Child sponsorship is an effective and ethical way for you to make an immediate and lasting improvement to the lives of the world’s poorest children.
When you sponsor a child, you can actually see the impact you are having and how you are helping the boy or girl you sponsor and the community around them.
When you sponsor a child, your contribution goes straight to the heart of that child’s community, not just to the child you sponsor. Your sponsorship ensures your sponsored child has the best chance in life, and that the community around benefits in so many ways.
Sponsorship lets you follow your sponsored child’s progress every step of the way. You can be hands-on with the community and child you sponsor. You’ll write letters, exchange experiences, get regular updates and photographs and even have the opportunity to meet if you so choose.
