PLAN CONNECT

We’re offering 200 people a unique opportunity: to sponsor a child in Brazil and connect with them via our brand new app.

Sponsoring a child is a life-changing experience – for you and for them. Now we’re thrilled to offer you a brand new opportunity: the chance to transform a child’s life and connect with them online, as you trial our brand new app.

Being a part of Plan Connect means you can send texts, images and videos to your sponsored child via your smartphone, iPad or tablet and hear back from them the exact same way, bringing you even closer to them and their day-to-day lives.

Plan Connect is currently a pilot project, linking just 200 sponsors with girls and boys in one community in Codó, Brazil. Don’t miss your chance to be part of something truly exciting. Sign up to sponsor a child and use the app.

HOW IT WORKS

We want to revolutionise the way child sponsorship works, and Plan Connect is the first step!

Sponsor a child using the app and you’ll be able to send and receive text, image and video messages from your phone. You'll also get updates about our work in Codó and the impact your support is having.

The pilot will run until 30 September 2018, when your communication will become letter-based. But your feedback will be vital in helping us develop the app – so we can make Plan Connect an option for our sponsors in the future.

Welcome to Codó

When you become part of Plan Connect, you’ll be sponsoring a child in a community in the north east of Brazil, where we’ve been working for the last eight years.

In that time, a lot has changed. We’ve helped promote children’s rights and access to education, building a new school and running training workshops for teachers.

But many families still struggle with a lack of access to education, healthcare and basic services, including toilets and clean running water – which is where your sponsorship can help.

Your support will change lives

By sponsoring a child, you won’t just transform one life, you’ll help change the future for the entire community. Your support will enable us to:

  • build new schools and refurbish existing ones in Codó
  • train new teachers
  • construct a new water supply
  • run programmes to make sure girls and boys feel safe in school
  • tackle gender inequality through our girls’ football club and young health programme.
