Sponsor a child in Guinea-Bissau

Sponsoring a child in Guinea-Bissau 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 Guinea-Bissau


  • Nearly half the population are living in poverty.
  • Around 92% of people living in rural areas do not have adequate sanitation facilities.
  • Outbreaks of cholera are common, and because children are generally less thorough when washing their hands, they are particularly vulnerable to this potentially fatal disease.
  • More than 45% of the population cannot read or write – in some poorer areas 88% of females are illiterate.
