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 Darpo

I am a 16 year old girl from Burkina Faso

Darpo and family live in the area of South West, Burkina Faso. South West is approx. 381 kilometers from the capital city of Ouagadougo. The land is very wide and rough with hills and two rivers-Bougouriba and Mouhoun. Families live in traditional houses built with mud and sticks, called “Sukala”. More than 56% of all households in South West live below the poverty line which is estimated at about $165/year/adult. Many children particular girls do not have access to primary and secondary school due to few classrooms and the poor living conditions of their parents. The majority drop out of school because of difficult conditions, violence, walking long distances, food shortage, forced or early marriages, and unwanted pregnancies. Plan since 1993, has made a significant difference in the lives of the people. Plan built and rehabilitated over 300 classrooms for primary and secondary schools. Students were provided with school supplies and classroom desks. This led to an increase in enrollment of children especially girls. Plan supported child vaccinations and provided all households in the region with treated mosquito nets. Plan also supported the training of health professionals and village health workers, built 190 boreholes and 268 school latrines, protecting children from preventable diseases. Plan will continue to work on malnutrition problems, primary education, child rights and develop communication skills of children thru capacity building programs.
