Visit Your Sponsored Child

A Journey Worth Making

Visits are currently paused

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, visits to sponsored children are on hold

Visiting your sponsored child is a fantastic opportunity and will be a day you’ll always remember.

You will meet and spend time with your sponsored child and family and see how our work is making a real difference in their community.

The one-day fully-supervised visit will leave you both with treasured memories, a closer bond and an insight into our community development work.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have cancelled or postponed all non-essential travel, which includes visits from sponsors to meet their sponsored child.

This is to help minimise the risks to children, their communities, sponsors and our staff. We are reviewing the situation regularly and hope to get sponsor visits up and running again as soon as it is safe to do so.

Plan sponsor visits sponsored child in Peru

An Unforgettable Journey

"Any apprehension we felt as we went off-road and into the Andes, was soon quashed by the warmth and friendliness of the whole school who came out to meet us. 

"Hearing their songs, poems and stories was truly humbling and before long our kids and all the children were playing together as if they had been friends for ever.

"It was an experience that all of us will never forget.”

- Joe McLewin, Plan International UK child sponsor
