Founded in 1937, Plan International is one of the oldest and largest international development organizations, 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 has only one agenda: to improve the lives of children.
Plan International is an independent global organization that strives not only to advance children’s rights but equality for girls.
Around the world, girls continue to face unique barriers that violate their rights and keep them from achieving their full potential. Discrimination against girls leads to grave injustices like gender-based violence, being forced to drop out of school, child marriage and early pregnancy.
Plan International is standing with girls and young women creating pathways for them to become leaders and make change happen. They work with all community members and leaders, including men and boys, to help girls learn, lead, decide and thrive – because empowering girls is essential to achieving gender equality.
