The impact of your letter
Visit your sponsored child
Some of our sponsors visit their sponsored child to see for themselves how Plan International’s work is raising the community out of poverty.
Visiting your sponsored child will leave you both with treasured memories and a closer bond, and give you an insight into another culture.
"Meeting May and her family was a wonderful experience. We were invited for lunch with her extended family, teachers, community leaders and Plan International workers. We didn't seem to notice that we didn't speak each other's languages."
- Sara Stirling
