Sponsor a child in Kenya

Sponsoring a child in Kenya 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 Kenya


  • Poverty in Kenya is being fueled by several factors, among them high unemployment, an HIV and AIDS epidemic and an education system in crisis. Children are suffering as a consequence.
  • Many children die of preventable or treatable diseases – 1.5 million each year don’t live to see their fifth birthday.
  • Around 70% of the population do not have adequate sanitation facilities.
  • Female genital mutilation is widely accepted – more than a quarter of women have been cut.
