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 Neimata

I am a 14 year old girl

Neimata and family live in the province of Sanmatenga located in the Center-north of Burkina Faso. It covers 7,741 square kilometers and is divided into 11 communes with 381 villages. The weather is a dry season of 8 months and a rainy season of 4 months from June to September. The population is approximately 684,000 with 59% being children. It is mainly made up of the Mossi ethnic group and Animism is the dominant religion. The typical housing is mainly composed of huts built with unfired mud bricks and straw roofs. The minimum size of a family is 6 people. 34% of the population is living under the poverty line at an estimate of $165/year. Malaria, acute respiratory infections and diarrhea are the main causes of admittance to the hospital and of children death. There is usually a low attendance rate to health centers because many of the population is involved in self-medication and traditional medicine. Preschool education is not well developed due to poverty, ignorance of the system by parents and insufficient infrastructures. Plan has been working in the Province of Sanmatenga since 1976 and has contributed in making a significant difference in children’s lives. Projects have focused on the building/rehabilitating of primary and secondary classrooms. Plan is working in partnership with local associations for a social mobilization in the villages to achieve a sustainable behavior change in maternal and child health, and youth sexual and reproductive health.

My Name is Hannah

I am a 14 year old girl

Hannah and family live in the area of Central. Central is located in Winneba, the Central Region of Ghana. The Central Region is the fourth poorest region in Ghana. The land is generally flat with few mountain stretches along the cost. The dominant religion in the area is Christianity, with a few practicing Islam and traditionalists. They live in mud houses with aluminum roofing sheets, while few others live in concrete houses with similar roofs. Lack of health facilities and negative socio-cultural beliefs is a big threat to the wellbeing of children. High infantile death due to malaria, inadequate knowledge between hygiene and health also affects children in the area. Children have to walk daily for almost an hour to back and forth to school. Pre-school children who cannot walk long distances do not have easy access to early learning childhood development which forms part of their basic education. Plan office in the Central area was officially established in October 2011. With the construction of over 100 schools and the provision of teaching and learning materials more children especially girls have been enrolled and retained in schools. The construction of a medical laboratory furnished with medical equipment and training for medical health workers has provided the people in the area with quality health services. The village savings and loans groups in the area are helping mothers to improve upon their incomes to enable them take good care of their children.
