WHO WE ARE
Founded in 1937, Plan International is 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, Plan International strives for a just world that advances children’s rights and equality for girls.
Plan International is the organization behind Because I am a Girl, a global movement to transform power relations so that girls everywhere can learn, lead, decide and thrive. Investing in girls is key to eliminating poverty and creating a safer,brighter future for everyone. When girls are educated, healthy, safe from violence and empowered, they lift themselves, their families and their communities out of poverty.
Our vision is of a world in which all children realize their full potential in societies that respect people's rights and dignity.
Plan International 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.
