Sponsor a child in Bangladesh

Sponsoring a child in Bangladesh with Plan International is one of the easiest ways to improve the lives of all children and to make sure girls have access to equal opportunities.


By becoming a child sponsor, you guarantee a child – and all children in their community – have everything they need to grow, learn and plan for their futures.


Child sponsorship helps tackle the root causes of discrimination, exclusion and vulnerability, and support some of the world’s most vulnerable children to thrive.

Key Challenges for children in Bangladesh


  • More than 3% of all children die before the age of 5.
  • Neonatal death and maternal mortality rates remain high, primarily because most deliveries take place at home without access to proper medical care.
  • Bangladesh has one of the lowest rates of birth registration in the world, making it difficult to protect children from trafficking, child labour, and child marriage.
  • Twenty-six million children live below the national poverty line.
  • Bangladesh is particularly vulnerable to flooding, cyclones, and tornados.

How your support is helping children like Mosamat


Mosamat, 17, is a Plan International Youth Advocate supporting girls’ rights in Bangladesh. She works with other teens to educate parents, peers, and their greater community on the importance of keeping girls in school.

“We’re helping girls learn instead of being forced to marry by their parents,” says Mosamat. “This way girls in our village can contribute to our community.”
