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.

You can make a difference. Sponsor a child.

My Name is Tanuj

I am a 16 year old boy from India

Tanuj and family live in a small house made of thatch and mud. Their home has no running water or toilet facilities. Their daily meals consist mostly of rice and vegetables. Foods such as milk, fruit, meat and fish are rarely eaten except on special, festive occasions. The family spends most of its income on food, fuel, clothing and medicine. Despite their hard work, your sponsored family's income is not enough to meet all their basic needs. The families are deeply motivated to improve their lives. Your help is greatly appreciated.

My Name is Tiecoura

I am a 16 year old boy from Mali

Tiecoura and family live in the area of the Kati Region. Women make up 50.3% of the population. Approximately 90% of the population is Muslim and the remaining are Christians. Most houses in the area are made of adobe with thatched roofs. The average size of a household is seven. There are some community health centers but many villages still do not have access to health services because of the distance and high costs related in visiting these centers. There exist inadequate numbers of clean water points and lack of sanitation. There is a lack of school infrastructures in the area. That accounts for the high number of children in classrooms. Only 0.7% of children aged 3-6 years go to pre-school. Many students sent to the public secondary schools by the local education authorities, drop out of courses because of problems related to lodgings and/or the distance from home to school. Plan began to work in Kati in 1986 and over the years many projects in the area of health, education, child protection, water and hygiene have been implemented to better the living conditions of the children, families and the people in the area. There has been an improvement in the quality of teaching and an increase rate of access to primary school and pre-school. Plan rehabilitated two manual pumps and drilled eight new points of water. When meningitis broke out Plan supported the area’s community health centers for vaccination, fuel for vaccinators’ motorbikes and their daily expenses.
