What makes an effective child sponsorship program?

At Plan International USA, we offer a smart and tested way to form inspiring connections with amazing children, while empowering communities all around the world.

We focus less on feeding, clothing, and sheltering communities, and more on equipping them with the tools to feed, clothe, and shelter themselves by allocating funds to where they are needed most. This approach maximizes impact while allowing our sponsors to develop meaningful connections with brave, determined children.

Through this unique partnership, both sponsors and sponsored children are continually inspired and reaffirmed in their commitment to making the world a better place.

You can make a difference. Sponsor a child.
