April 2017: Let's Lead

Together, we can lead!

Letter from the Editor

We believe that when someone is a leader, she will build a better future for herself, her community, and her country.

That’s why, during International Women’s Day last month, we stood proudly behind the WomenLead Institute and Global Women in Management program, both of which empower women to lead.

We believe young people also have the power to lead, and we look to them for support at all levels of our organization through our Youth Advisory Board. We believe children everywhere should have a say over what happens with their lives and their communities. And, we’ll support girls to drive social, economic, and political change.

We believe leadership changes the world.

But, to build leadership skills in others, we must also be leaders. To do this, we must stand up and act. Sponsor a child. Become an endowed sponsor. Join the conversation on social media, or simply speak to your friends and encourage them to join the #WePlan movement.

Plan is a leader in the movement for children’s rights. But, we cannot do that without our donors and supporters.

Together, we can lead!
