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 you can follow their progress every step of the way.
It is your commitment to your sponsored child that allows Plan International to design, deliver and implement quality, sustainable programmes that help your sponsored child, their family and entire community.
When you sponsor a child, your contribution goes straight to the heart of that child’s community. Your sponsorship ensures your sponsored child has the chance to go to school, to eat a healthy meal each day, to be safe and healthy and to have a roof over their head and food in their belly.
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.
