Unlocking Hope for Children Like Salimata Through Your Tax Form


Your signed tax form holds incredible power, it can unlock vital funds that could change a child’s life forever. Take, for instance, the story of 12-year-old Salimata from Mali

Salimata, along with her siblings and father, Sanoussi, fled their home five years ago to seek safety from violence in their area. In 2022, Sanoussi received crucial cash support from Plan International, enabling him to provide for his family while ensuring Salimata received an education. 

“The cash allowed us to buy food like rice and millet. We also use it to raise animals like cattle, sheep, and goats, which we can breed and sell. We can make a profit with the cash and be self-sufficient.”

Plan International runs numerous Cash Voucher Assistance programmes in Mali where conflict and hunger have forced more than 375,000 people to flee their homes.  Cash support is a lifeline that empowers families to lift themselves out of poverty in a sustainable way. Just like Sanoussi, who can now afford to send his daughter to school.   

“I am very happy that my daughter is in school. Before she was enrolled, she could not read and write her name. But ever since she enrolled, I have noticed a positive change, unlike the girls who are not in school”
