BECOME A   SPONSOR

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.

My Name is Daglous

I am a 16 year old boy from Zambia

Daglous 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.

My Name is Khaleel

I am a 15 year old boy from Pakistan

Khaleel and family live in a rural community. The main source of income and employment for the majority of the population is farming. However, their incomes are insufficient and as a result, they are unable to buy even the basic amenities of life. Most of the houses in the area are two-room and typically made of mud, and wood. People access drinking water, either from a central water reservoir or from a partially functional handpump well located in their courtyards. Families have three meals a day, which are usually comprised of vegetables and lentils with "chapati" (bread made of wheat). Health facilities are limited. There are no sewage systems. Household waste is disposed of in the open fields, creating breeding grounds for diseases like malaria and cholera. Although your sponsored family works hard, it is difficult to make ends meet. Your sponsorship will make a difference in their lives.
