Spring 2021: Localization, extreme poverty reduction and menstrual health

Spring From Plan To Action

Welcome to From Plan to Action, Plan International USA’s quarterly newsletter highlighting our latest research; programmatic impact, lessons learned and best practices; and thought pieces.

In this issue, we examine how to change the buzz word localization into action by sharing lessons learned and recommendations from supporting a local organization to become a USAID implementing partner in Central America. In addition, we explore a model to end extreme poverty and take a look at the impacts of period stigma and poverty in the U.S.


This Month's Articles:

  3. It’s time to talk: Menstrual health in the U.S.
