Founded over 70 years ago, Plan is a nearly $800 million organization often ranked among the top 10 international development agencies by reputation, size and scope. We work side-by-side with communities in 50 developing countries to end the cycle of poverty for children, developing solutions to ensure long-term sustainability. Our level of community engagement, long-term outlook and constant focus on the needs and priorities of children is unique among international development organizations. Our solutions are designed up-front to be owned by communities for generations to come and range from clean water and health care programs, to education projects and child protection initiatives. Community by community, Plan works to promise futures that are worthy of all children’s potential.
Plan strives to achieve lasting improvements in the quality of life of vulnerable children in developing countries by:
- Enabling children, their families and their communities to meet basic needs and to increase their ability to participate in and benefit from their societies;
- Fostering relationships to increase understanding and unity among peoples of different cultures and countries; and
- Promoting the rights and interests of the world’s children.
