Letter from the Editor
More than 80 years partnering with donors and supporters have taught us that we make the greatest impact when we harness the promise and potential of the most vulnerable and marginalized.
We work side-by-side with local leaders ensuring any change starts with—and is owned by— communities where we work.
Our work with girls and women is an example of the collective impact that can be made when the one of the world’s most excluded groups is given a chance to transform their family, community, and country.
Just this past spring, Plan partnered with the Woodrow Wilson Center for a policy event series to explore how programs focused on women and girls can maintain momentum in 2018. In the coming month, women from around the world will come together at Plan’s offices in Washington D.C. for the Global Women in Management program, which aims to empower women business and community leaders.
We believe a better world is possible when we’re all working together—and when everyone is empowered.
The Plan Network
As one of the largest child rights organizations in the world, we use our network of more than 70 offices around the world to drive changes in practice and policy at local, national, and global levels, with the goal of advancing children's rights and equality for girls.
