Change A Child's Life Today

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, your contribution goes straight to the heart of that child’s community and beyond. 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. But more than that. Sponsorship allows us to leverage more funds. Respond to crises quickly and effectively and ensure that your support goes so much further.

The Power of Your Sponsorship

Your sponsorship will fund life-changing projects in your sponsored child’s community – projects that will help children access their basic rights.

Sponsorship lets you follow your sponsored child’s progress every step of the way.

You can be hands-on with the community and child that you sponsor. You’ll write letters, exchange experiences, get regular updates and photographs and even have the opportunity to meet if you so choose.

It is your commitment to your sponsored child that allows Plan International Ireland to design, deliver and implement quality, sustainable programmes that help your sponsored child, their family and the entire community and millions of children in some of the world’s poorest countries.

Join us and see what a difference you can make.
