Letter from the Editor
In a world fraught with challenges, we stand on the front lines together.
Your support is empowering children to break the cycle of poverty, helping girls who are otherwise left vulnerable, and building resilience within communities around the world.
These actions come from our values, which reject the injustices of poverty and instead see a world where opportunity is a right and not a luxury.
In today’s volatile political and cultural climate, it is important to protect our values and drive changes in practice and policy at local, national, and global levels through advocacy. Our work on the ground will never end, but we also intend to speak up more than ever before. We hope you will stand with us and make your voices heard. Here’s how.
For 80 years, the Plan community has risen to the challenge by partnering with children and communities, as well as with you, our supporters. Now is no different.
Hope is powerful and life-affirming. It creates opportunities to thrive. Have you given a Gift of Hope this spring? Tell the world! Share on social media and use the hashtag #GiveDifferently.
