The Organisation

Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian organisation 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 it’s 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 – crises and adversity. We drive changes in practice and policy at local, national and global levels using our reach, experience and knowledge.

We have been building powerful partnerships for children for over 85 years, and are now active in more than 80 countries.

At Plan International, we are on a journey to becoming an anti-racist organisation that is truly inclusive and equitable, and that recognises and celebrates diversity in all its forms. We want to be a place where all colleagues – no matter who they are, where they come from, what they look like, what they believe in and who they love – can bring their true selves to work and feel empowered to make a difference for girls and young people all over the world.
