How sponsorship works
Your sponsorship could provide whole communities with access to health care, safe water and sanitation, education and the chance to earn a living.
HOW SPONSORS LIKE YOUR FRIEND ARE CHANGING LIVES
Eight-year-old Sarah lives in a remote village in Ghana. She’s a happy girl who loves to sing. And thanks to child sponsorship, her future is looking bright.
Sarah has the chance to go to school because teachers have been trained in her area, and her village now has a safe water supply. Children in her community have toilets at their school – which means that whilst they’re learning, Sarah and her friends are less at risk of getting sick with diseases spread by dirty water.
All this has been made possible with the support of our incredible sponsors. Become a sponsor today and help give every child, every chance.
SEE THE WHOLE COMMUNITY FLOURISH
When you sponsor a child through Plan International UK, you’ll see a whole community flourish.
Sponsorship supports projects like building schools, training teachers, providing vaccinations and digging wells, so everyone has clean water.
Child sponsorship also provides vital medical infrastructure and sanitation, so the community can stand strong against future emergencies.

SEE THE DIFFERENCE FOR YOURSELF
As a sponsor, you’ll be part of a young child’s life. You’ll receive a photo of them for you to treasure, along with information about them and their community.
They’ll soon send you a letter or drawing which you can respond to, so you can hear all about their dreams and encourage them to reach for them. Don’t worry if you’re not sure what to write – we’ll send you a full sponsorship guide containing everything need. You don’t have to write to them, but they’ll love it if you do!
