The Organisation

Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian organisation

We believe in the power and potential of every child. But this is often
suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination. And it’s girls
who are most affected.

Working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners, we
strive for a just world, tackling the root causes of the challenges facing
girls and all vulnerable children.

We support children’s rights from birth until they reach adulthood. And we
enable children to prepare for – and respond to – crises and adversity. We
drive changes in practice and policy at local, national and global levels
using our reach, experience and knowledge.

We have been building powerful partnerships for children for over 80 years,
and are now active in more than 70 countries.
