Plan’s strategy emphasizes community engagement and ownership as the means to address the needs of children around the world, and our community-based development programs focus on eight technical areas: Education, Economic Security, Water and Sanitation, Health, Sexual Health (including HIV), Emergencies, Protection, and Child Participation.
By 2020, Plan strives to be recognized for its approach to helping communities improve the lives of marginalized children and youth. Through effective interventions that meet the different needs of girls and boys and allow them to flourish, Plan will work with community members to create clean and safe environments that promote education and economic opportunities.
