Sponsor a child in 2016

Don't give up something for New Years, give something back.

Give Something Back – Sponsor a Child >>

New Year’s Resolutions don’t have to be about giving up something!

Sponsoring a child with Plan International Ireland is a totally different way of looking at New Year’s Resolutions. Instead of giving up something, you can decide to give something back to a child, and their community.

Child Sponsorship is …

… Community-Changing – Sponsor one child but see an entire community develop. Teachers are trained, schools are improved, girls are empowered, families are strengthened and entire communities are changed for the better.

… Transparent – When you sponsor a child, you will receive regular updates about our work in the community, cards and pictures from your child and you can even visit your sponsored child in their community. All open, all honest, all transparent.

… Personal – Only you will be sponsoring your child. It’s a real, personal and tangible relationship that will develop over time. Whether by letter, post-card or photo, you will both learn about each other’s lives in a special way.


Plan International is a global children’s organisation that is making a positive impact in the lives of 81 million children in over 86,000 communities around the world. One of the best ways for us and for you to make an immediate and lasting improvement to the lives of the world’s poorest children is by sponsoring one child in one 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.

Join us in 2016 and see what a difference you can make in the life of a child in need. It’s the best new year’s resolution you make.
