Sponsor a child
benefitting whole communities
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 can also provide vital medical infrastructure and sanitation, so the community is more resilient against future emergencies.
How sponsorship supports children
Eight-year-old Sarah lives in a remote village in Ghana. She’s a happy little 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.
And all this has been made possible with the support of our incredible sponsors. Become a sponsor today and help give every child, every chance.
SPONSOR A GIRL LIKE LEHANNA
Sponsor a girl today and you can help protect girls like Lehanna. Forced out of school to marry a man twice her age, she is one of the 40,000 children who are married around the world, every day.
Your sponsorship will help girls out of child marriage and into school, as well as providing communities with clean water, healthcare and all the things that give girls strength and hope.
You’ll also be able to exchange letters with the girl you sponsor – so you can see the difference you’re making to her life and her future.
When you sign up to be a sponsor we’ll send you a welcome pack with a photo of your sponsored child and information about them and their community. This will be followed by a letter or drawing from your sponsored child, which you can respond to.
You’ll receive annual updates and photos, so that you can follow your sponsored child's progress and find out more about the activities that Plan International is supporting in their community.
