1. Sponsorship benefits the sponsored child.

Sandra was raised in a community in Zimbabwe where opportunities were limited because of extreme poverty. But, thanks to Child Sponsorship, she was given the opportunity to go to school.

I became a sponsored child when I was in grade 2. I was 8 years old. I enjoyed the benefits of textbooks, being sponsored by Plan. That changed my life because I could study hard.

Now, Sandra is a teacher and is teaching her students about the importance of education.

2. Sponsorship benefits the community.

I went to visit my sponsored child, Ruby in Ghana, Africa The money from sponsors funds so many amazing projects that benefit both sponsored children and the children in their community. It makes more of a difference than you can even imagine!

3. Sponsorship benefits you

I have been writing back and forth with my sponsored child for about 5 years now and – still – few things bring me as much joy as coming home to see a letter on my floor with that Plan logo on it, knowing it could be a letter, translated to English, sent all the way from a small village in Africa
