“We feel proud to be part of Plan International UK, which does such fantastic and diverse work right at the heart of the poorest communities in the world.
"We spent a few days in a really rural part of Ghana where water was collected from rivers and streams and where people were living hand to mouth. Some of the villages are so remote you wonder how Plan International UK even knows of them. But Plan International UK overcomes the challenges and finds and empowers the people who need our support most. The relationships they build with the communities are really strong, and nowhere was this more evident that on our project visit.”
“I will never forget the day during our trip when I met a “Rights of the Child” group, at a Plan International UK supported school. Doris, a 15-year old girl who we met there was so bright, so eloquent, and so ambitious, I could not help but feel that she could be a future world leader.
"Also we like the fact that our money goes much further in developing countries, and we can be sure it is going to excellent use. With careers like ours, we are keen to know that our investments into the charity are reaping real profits for children.”
Since visiting Plan International UK’s work, Chris has also generously pledged his pro bono support to our work to develop organisational capacity as part of his personal partnership with the organisation, and he and Natalie will be sponsoring children in communities where they have supported projects to build on the relationships they have begun.
