Plan International UK
Plan is a child-centred community development organisation with no religious and political affiliations, enabling families and communities in the poorest countries to make lasting improvements to the lives of their children.
In the countries where we work, one out of five children die before the age of five, and the ones who survive often go hungry and have no chance of learning to read and write.
Plan works with children, their parents, and their community, to plan practical ways to provide many of the things we take for granted in the UK, so that together we build schools, drill wells, get nurses trained and help families to better support themselves.
Plan seeks to ensure that children are actively involved in the decision-making process, working with adults who have learnt to value their contribution.
