How donations reach communities
Child Sponsorship contributions are pooled centrally and go to community-wide development projects that are led by and for the children and families in that community.
Designated contributions like major financial donations, Gifts of Hope and ongoing contributions to Project Sponsorships go to the project chosen by the donor and are managed by Plan International Canada in collaboration with Plan International’s Country Offices.
In all cases, we collaborate with community members, including children, to develop the most needed programs, which are then supported by our funds. Plan International partners with communities to build schools, dig wells, open health clinics, provide vocational training like green business skills and teacher training, innovate ways to improve agriculture, help people access loans to start small businesses and much more.
