Plan is a global movement for change, mobilizing millions of people around the world to support social justice for children in developing countries.
Founded in 1937, we are one of the world’s oldest and largest international development agencies, working in partnership with millions of people around the world to end global poverty. Not for profit, independent and inclusive of all faiths and cultures, we have only one agenda: to improve the lives of children.
Through programs in 66 countries, we give children, families and communities the tools they need to break the cycle of poverty and build sustainable solutions for improving their own lives.
Each year, our work impacts the lives of children and families in 37,000 communities. Join us and plan to change the world.
Plan aims to achieve lasting improvements in the quality of life of children, families and communities in developing countries. We do this through a process of collaboration that unites people across cultures, adding meaning and value to their lives by:
Enabling children, their families and communities to meet their basic needs and to increase their ability to participate in and benefit from their societies
Building relationships to increase understanding and unity among peoples of different cultures and countries
Advocating and promoting the rights and interests of the world's children, with a special focus on Girls’ Rights to overcome issues of gender discrimination.
