Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian organization that strives for a just world that advances children’s rights and equality for girls.


We believe in the power and potential of every child.  But this is often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination.  And its 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 – crisis and adversity.  We drive changes in practice and policy at local, national and global levels using our reach, experience and knowledge.


We employ more than 9,000 people in programme countries, working with over 85,000 communities.  We have been building powerful partnerships for children for almost 80 years, and are now active in more than 70 countries.
