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 Jessica

I am a 14 year old girl from Honduras

Jessica and family live in a community in the southwest of Honduras. Most men work as day laborers or farmers growing coffee, corn, beans, and rice, or raising farm animals. Many women work at farming or have part-time jobs sewing, or selling bread, eggs or fruit. The majority of the population has access to running water systems, but some people get water from unprotected sources such as streams and rivers. Very few homes have access to electricity and most community members use candles or gas burners to light their homes. Schools are overcrowded and lack basic equipment and supplies. The families are working hard to improve their lives. Your help is greatly appreciated.
