Reviews for Plan International Inc.
I have been a Plan sponsor since 1984, and have sponsored children from thailand, vietnam, cambodia, india, and china over those years. I have gotten to know several of my sponsored children by exchanging letters and cards. Plan is able to make a lasting difference in the communities in which it is active, funding projects that enable the community to address difficult fundamental problems. Plan emphasizes sustainability and education - so that a community is able to learn skills to help themselves, rather than making them dependent upon donations indefinitely. Plan receives a high rating from most/all independent charity rating organizations for financial responsibility, accountability, and transparency. 80% of the funds received go to program expenses, while only 9% go to administrative/management expenses. Plan is a worthwhile organization.
