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 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.

My Name is Yostin

I am a 9 year old boy

Yostin and family live in a community in the west of the Dominican Republic. Few roads provide access to this community and it is very difficult to reach during the rainy season. Most families earn their living farming, although few own their land. Schools in the community have deteriorated and the health center is poorly staffed. Women fetch water from nearby streams which are contaminated due to the lack of garbage disposal. Few families have access to latrines. The families are eager to improve their lives. Your help is greatly appreciated.

My Name is Teresa

I am a 16 year old girl

Teresa and family live in a rural coastal community in the southern region of Mozambique. The majority of the population works in subsistence farming to earn income. The quality of education is poor--more qualified teachers are needed. Desks, chairs, books and learning materials are scarce. Secondary schools are located faraway leaving children to walk long distances to reach them. Health facilities lack proper equipment, supplies and adequately trained medical staff. Due to the lack of safe drinking water and sanitary waste facilities there are high incidents of waterborne diseases, especially in young children. Electricity is limited to a few families. The families are working hard to improve their lives. Your help is greatly appreciated.

My Name is Filipe

I am a 11 year old boy

Filipe 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.

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.
