Ms. Formentini will shed light on untold stories of the positive impact of child sponsorship, giving a global perspective to the benefits of sponsorship and how they have affected the farthest-flung parts of the world, including Bangladesh, India, and Nepal. The focus will be on once-sponsored adults and the positive impact the experience has had on their lives and communities.

Powered by its supporters, Plan partners with adolescent girls, young women and children around the world to overcome oppression and gender inequality, providing the support and resources that are unique to their needs and the needs of their communities, ensuring they achieve their full potential with dignity, opportunity and safety. One aspect of Plan's work is the elimination of sex trafficking, and Laura Formentini will also have access to these stories and incorporate them into this important book.
