Eudel, 8, Zimbabwe - Sponsored child
“If I could meet the sponsors, I will be happy, clean and wearing a presentable uniform. I would like to tell them: ‘Thank you very much’.” Eudel, 8, Zimbabwe - Sponsored child

You’ll change the lives of children like Eudel

Like most 8-year-old girls, Eudel likes going to school, playing with her friends and spending time with her grandmother – especially enjoying her cooking! But growing up in a rural community in Zimbabwe, where few resources were available, posed several challenges for her family’s ability to meet daily living needs. Now, thanks to Plan International and Child Sponsorship, Eudel can source clean water from a nearby well, eat balanced meals and attend school with her friends, while also looking forward to a brighter future.

Judy Seall, Sponsor

You’ll join a community of sponsors

Your £19.50 monthly gift is added to those from other sponsors, so together you achieve things you couldn’t on your own – like building a school or digging a well. Judy Seall, who sponsors Ana from Guatemala, says: “I can’t change every girl’s situation – I’m only one person. But if everybody does something, then it quickly multiplies.”

That's just 65p a day. Thanks to sponsors, if a child is ill, they could see a doctor. When they’re thirsty, they could have clean water to drink. As they get older, they could learn to read and write.

Jane French, Volunteer Trustee, Plan International

Your donation will be used effectively

Every penny you donate is monitored by volunteer trustees like Jane French. She says:

“I support the procedures that ensure that no money is wasted, with at least 80% of our income spent on charitable activities including our emergency response work and long-term development projects. As a trustee, I also make sure everybody in Plan International continues to adhere to child protection regulations.”

I have been sponsored since I was five. I am in year 6 now and like to learn Hindi poems and play with my friends. I want to be a teacher and help other children. I am so happy to be a sponsored child. Thank you!
