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 Feliciano

I am a 16 year old boy from Honduras

Feliciano and family live in a community in the southwest of Honduras. Men work as farmers, or day laborers. Women also work in farming or have part-time jobs baking bread to sell or sewing clothes. Very few homes have access to electricity and people use candles or gas burners to light their homes. Most people have access to running water systems but some get water from unprotected sources such as rivers or streams. Common methods of transportation are walking, horseback or bicycle. There are health facilities and schools. However, basic equipment and supplies are needed. The families are eager to improve their lives. Your help is greatly appreciated.

My Name is Jorge

I am a 15 year old boy from Timor-Leste

Jorge and family live in a mountain community. The terrain is rugged. Poor roads and heavy rains during the rainy season make getting to and from school difficult for children. Families are large, often with 10 to 12 children. Most people work as farmers and grow food for their own consumption. Sometimes families can grow enough food to sell at the marketplace. Very few homes have electricity. Kerosene lamps are used to light homes at night. Safe drinking water is inaccessible. Primary schools are overcrowded, lack furniture, books, and sanitary waste facilities. High schools are located in outlying areas. Health clinics are not equipped to meet the needs of patients. The families are working hard to improve their lives. Your help is greatly appreciated.

My Name is Kai

I am a 15 year old boy from China

Kai lives in a mountainous community central China. The climate is dry and temperate with little rainfall which makes the lack of water one of the main difficulties people face here. The majority of the population work as farmers. Most of the houses in the area are man-made cave dwellings consisting of dirt and bricks. People eat mostly millet and potatoes and on special occasions they also eat corn, wheat, and mutton. Classrooms, like most of the houses, are cave-like. Many classrooms are shared by more than one grade due to the lack of teachers and space. Desks and necessities like books and teaching materials are in short supply. Health facilities are limited and those that do exist are poorly equipped. These families are deeply motivated to improve their situation and your assistance will help them achieve their goals.
