Meet a Sponsored Child from Nicaragua

Meet Alison, a 13-year-old Plan International sponsored child from Nicaragua.

We gave her a camera to show us a day in her life. Alison rides her bicycle 10km to get to secondary school where she is in her second year. Plan refurbished her school and equipped it with new furniture and books.


There are no water facilities in Alison’s community so she has to travel to a faraway well to get water for cooking, drinking, and washing. A lot of people in Alison’s country live in poverty: two out of three people living in rural areas have no health services. Plan trains volunteers to monitor the weight and size of children to identify malnutrition and sickness.
