Letter from the Editor
As a member of the Plan community, you see a future full of possibility.
A future where children have broken from the chains of poverty and are empowered to steer their own lives and positively contribute to their communities. A future where girls and boys are afforded the same opportunities, and opportunities are not limited because of finite resources like water and sanitation.
The truth, though, is that the future is now. It just needs to be unlocked. Children and youth everywhere are doing amazing things—and they are capable of achieving much more.
This past month, Nupur, a Plan International youth ambassador from Bangladesh, attended the Gender 360 Summit in Washington D.C.
“With proper knowledge and skill, we can make a big difference in the world,” she said.
Girls and boys everywhere can – and are – changing the world. We Plan to unlock their limitless promise and potential. Join us.
