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 Safiatou

I am a 16 year old girl

Safiatou 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.
