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 Salmon

I am a 16 year old boy from Kenya

Salmon and family live in a community located near Lake Victoria. Most people work as farmers. They use some of their produce for their families' consumption and sell the rest at the marketplace. There are very few primary schools in the area. Attending high school requires traveling long distances outside of the communities. Inadequate textbooks and school furniture make learning difficult for students. Most families do not have access to safe water and adequate sanitation facilities. Outbreaks of malaria are common, particularly among the young. The families are working hard to improve their lives. Your help is greatly appreciated.
