Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian organisation that advances children’s rights and equality for girls.

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.
