Sponsor a child in Ethiopia

Sponsoring a child in Ethiopia 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 Ethiopia


  • More than 60% of the population in Ethiopia cannot read or write.
  • Child marriage is widely accepted – 41% of girls are married by the age of 18.
  • Many children die of preventable or treatable diseases – 205,000 children each year don’t live to see their fifth birthday.
  • Fewer than half of pregnant women in Ethiopia receive antenatal care, and a trained midwife attends a small fraction of deliveries.
