Why Children?

Because none of us can move forward if half of us are held back.



SOME NUMBERS

19,000

The number of children that die every day due to malnutrition and lack of healthcare.

580m

The number of children that lack access to safe drinking water.

127m

The number of children that should be in school today that are not.

WHY SPONSORSHIP IS THE ANSWER?

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.
