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.

My Name is Stempen

I am a 16 year old boy from Zambia

Stempen and family live in a community in the eastern region of Zambia. Small-scale farming is the main economic activity. During the planting season families leave their homes and move to the fields. Children's education is interrupted at this time. Many resume school once the crops are harvested, but this often leads to poor academic performance. Most houses in the area are made of wood, mud and thatched grass. Pit latrines are used as waste facilities. Waterborne diseases are common, especially during the rainy season. These families are deeply motivated to improve their situation and your assistance will help them achieve their goals.
