A Story of Hope: Because of You, Claire is Beating the Odds

Claire is a sponsored child in Burkina Faso

Although she lost her father at a young age, Claire is thriving in school. A 14-year-old Plan sponsored child, she lives in Burkina Faso, where fewer than 20 percent of girls make it past elementary school.

You’re helping to change that. An incredible 40,000 Burkinabe girls like Claire are beating the odds, because compassionate people like you have provided resources for scholarships, stipends, bicycles, and school meals!

Plan sponsors have also helped build a village health center in Claire’s community. Now, in a country where 66,000 children each year will not live to celebrate their 5th birthdays, girls like Claire are staying healthy and thriving, with a brighter future ahead!
