WHAT YOU WILL RECEIVE
HOW SPONSORSHIP WORKS
A unique connection
Support girls and whole communities
From as little as 65p a day
Child marriage is a big problem in Antora’s community in Bangladesh. But thanks to child sponsorship, this 10-year-old girl doesn't fear marriage and is able to go to school.
She also attends a club that teaches her about her right to refuse child marriage, how handwashing can protect her from diseases and how to shelter safely if a disaster strikes.
“I don’t think I will be married early. I like going to school!”
Now more than ever, sponsors are needed to help girls like Antora continue learning through these tough circumstances.

YOU CAN HELP HER ACHIEVE HER DREAM
Layza is a sponsored child who lives in a rural community in Maranhão state, Brazil.
She was part of a Plan International project around child protection. This project set out to help her and other children in her community identify forms of abuse they may be exposed to and to understand their rights and how to protect themselves.
“This was a very important programme for me. We played, we talked about bullying and abuse. Now, I even know how to identify when someone is looking at me in a weird way, I know how to protect myself.”
Every girl, like Layza, dreams of what she wants to be. For Layza this is to be a leader in government. Support girls like Layza to know their rights and achieve their dreams.
