Updates about their progress
12-year-old Layza lives in a rural community in Maranhão state, Brazil. Nearly 1,000 families live in this community without basic sanitation or access to healthcare. With just one school in the community, access to education is also limited.
Layza took part in a Plan International child protection project and learned about her rights. “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.” says Layza.
By giving the gift of sponsorship today, you can support more life-changing community projects and help show girls like Layza that their futures are theirs to decide.

HEAR FROM OUR SPONSORS
Jane has been a sponsor with Plan International for over 15 years. This has given Jane and her family the opportunity to develop a unique connection with two boys in El Salvador and Guatemala.
“I liked the idea of helping people in need of support whilst also forming a connection with another family across the world. Sponsoring with Plan International has been a very positive experience, they do a great job at mediating the relationship between the sponsor and the child. It’s a very heart-warming experience. I look forward to receiving letters and drawings, which give a taste of their daily life on the other side of the world and what they might see.” Jane, Plan International UK sponsor.
