Plan International is a child-centered community development organization. We work with children, their families, communities, other organizations and local governments to bring about positive change. When children and adults work together as part of the change process, it is more likely that programs will be successful and sustainable.
How donations reach communities
Child Sponsorship contributions are pooled centrally and go to community development projects that benefit all children and families living in a community.
Project Sponsorship contributions flow to specific projects, such as the Because I am a Girl project, within multiple communities.
Community Sponsorship contributions flow to one specific community to support a holistic, community-based solution that includes clean water, education, food security, livelihood and gender equality.
Gifts of Hope go to designated projects in the communities where we work. In all cases, contributions support projects that have been developed in collaboration with community members – including children.
