Founded over 80 years ago, Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian organisation that advances children’s rights and equality for girls. The organisation engages people and partners to:
- Empower children, young people and communities to make vital changes that tackle the root causes of discrimination against girls, exclusion and vulnerability.
- Drive change in practice and policy at local, national and global levels through our reach, experience and knowledge of the realities children face.
- Work with children and communities to prepare for and respond to crises and to overcome adversity.
- Support the safe and successful progression of children from birth to adulthood.
Plan International global advocacy work not only focuses on international policy but also ensures national governments can meaningfully implement and uphold laws that advance children’s rights and gender equality at community level
Today, Plan International is active in over 70 countries and over the next 5 years its ambition is to transform the lives of 100 million girls.
