Plan International

Founded 75 years ago, Plan is one of the oldest and largest children's development organisations in the world. We work in 50 developing countries across Africa, Asia and the Americas to promote child rights and lift millions of children out of poverty.

In 2011, Plan reached 56,500,000 children in 58,053 communities.

Plan is independent, with no religious, political or governmental affiliations.

Our vision

Plan's vision is of a world in which all children realise their full potential in societies that respect people's rights and dignity.

Our mission

Plan aims to achieve lasting improvements in the quality of life of deprived children in developing countries, through a process that unites people across cultures and adds meaning and value to their lives, by:

  • enabling deprived children, their families and their communities to meet their basic needs and to increase their ability to participate in and benefit from their societies
  • building relationships to increase understanding and unity among peoples of different cultures and countries
  • promoting the rights and interests of the world's children.
