Caring across borders:

A donor's journey

Kevin Campbell

Long-time donor Kevin Campbell is a Vancouver businessman who treats his philanthropy much as he does his work: he asks questions and visits the field to ensure that his investment is being deployed effectively and efficiently.

There’s an obligation to look further than one’s backyard to lend a hand.

Campbell has donated to Plan International Canada through his foundation and in partnership with business contacts. He’s also personally visited programs in West Africa along the way. “I began my work with Plan largely focused on basic needs, such as health care and food security, but the programs that interest me now are about longer term development, such as financial literacy, skills training and income growth,” he explains. “I believe there’s an obligation to look further than one’s backyard to lend a hand. Charity can begin at home, but it should not end there,” he says.

Child Sponsorship Empowers 100 Communities

Children running through a field

Nearly 20 years ago, Plan International Canada began working in Paraguay. Our collaboration with 120,000 children and their families, through our Child Sponsorship Program, has focused on child protection, clean water, food security, health, education and birth registration.

Plan International’s work brought a lot of benefits to our school and community. We’re sad because you’re leaving, but we’re happy that you will help another school, in another community that needs it.

In Paraguarί and Guairá, more than 5,500 children have been part of our sponsorship program. Thanks to our generous sponsors, the 100 communities in those two areas now have the confidence and skills to continue their own development, so we’re phasing out of those communities. Saying goodbye to them is bittersweet, but our work is about helping people to build the capacity to develop their own communities. As Romina, aged 15, put it: “Plan International’s work brought a lot of benefits to our school and community. We’re sad because you’re leaving, but we’re happy that you will help another school, in another community that needs it.” Plan will continue to work with more than 300 other communities in Paraguay.
