BECOME A   SPONSOR

Today, more than 1.5 million children are sponsored through Plan International USA, but many more are waiting for a hero like you.

Plan's child sponsorship program offers a smart and tested way to form an inspiring connection with a child. When you become a child sponsor, your tax-deductible contributions are pooled to support community-led, self-sustaining projects that address urgent needs in your sponsored-child’s country. This maximizes your impact, allowing you to develop a meaningful connection with a brave, determined child, while improving the lives of many.

When you choose to become a sponsor, you can form a life-long bond that inspires and transforms entire communities.

You're just moments away from a gift that can change a child's life forever.

Thank you.

My Name is Jean

I am a 16 year old boy

Jean and family live in the area of Biteng. Biteng is located in the most populated central region of Cameroon. The region experiences two major seasons and the rains follow between a long dry season and a short dry season. The dominant ethnic group is the Fang Beti. They speak Ewondo, Eton and Mvele and Christianity is the main religion. Access to potable water is a major problem - 27% of the rural folks fetch water from unsafe sources. There are about 2500 schools in the area with a dropout rate of 2% due to unqualified teachers, educational infrastructure and facilities. Children have to walk for long distances to attend school. Young girls usually drop out of school very early due to teenage pregnancies. Childhood diseases like malaria, malnutrition, diarrhea, tetanus, respiratory infections, measles and polio are preventable and curable. Plan became a development partner in Biteng in 1996 and currently works in nine municipal areas. Positive changes have been recorded in the area. Over 1,300 children, mostly girls received scholarships comprised of text books and school bags. More teachers have been trained on new teaching methods to help the children enjoy their education. Pupils from different schools have received 20 school latrines. Access to potable water is very easy with the construction of boreholes and about 20 hand-dug wells. Since the savings and loans project was mobilized, it permitted women to financially support their child’s basic needs.
