Changing Lives

An analysis of Plan International’s Child Sponsorship data

As an evolving girls’ rights organisation with an 80 year history of working with children we see the value of child sponsorship every day and now we’ve captured the data that proves it, in our latest report Changing Lives.

We currently engage with 1.4 million sponsored children in 48 countries through sponsorship activities, communications and programs

Each year we interview every single one of these sponsored children and their families and since 2006, these interviews have been recorded – all 12 million of them.

We commissioned RMIT University to analyse this data and the resulting report, Changing Lives, looks at the information collected over this period to assess the real impact of Plan International’s sponsorship programs on children’s lives.

The findings? Sponsorship works! And it really is changing the lives of millions of children.
