Plan International - because children are at the heart of everything we do

It's been a while since I linked to Plan International and having just finished reading the girls a bedside story I figured it would do no harm to say that I think this is a truly worthwhile charity.

We sponsor a child in Kenya. His name is Mutie and his life is just so different to ours.

The things we take for granted like water, food, electricity, schooling and healthcare don't come so easily in his remote Kenyan village.

Plan help equip the villages with the tools and knowledge to implement long term change - on top of this we've been able to send gifts to Mutie such as a football with accompanying letter and pictures from the girls.

In return he has sent us pictures of himself and family and even letters that are translated by Plan staff in Kenya.

Donations don't have to be huge and if you get half the satisfaction from it that we do then it will truly be money well spent.
