March 2016: An Exciting Time

Mindi and her sponsored child Sreyneang.

Letter from the Editor

At Plan International USA, March is an exciting time.

It is fitting that a month like this kicked off with Zero Discrimination Day on March 1. As a movement dedicated to giving a voice to the silent and empowering vulnerable populations all over the world, we fight discrimination together every day.

This focus can be seen in our work with women, which we’ll celebrate on March 8 during International Women’s Day.

The Plan community will come together on March 22 for World Water Day – and throughout March we’ll be recognizing the importance of water and the luxury it is to many throughout the world. There are many ways you can join us, from giving back, to joining our CEO Tessie San Martin in her goal to spend a full day living on only five gallons of water.

Be sure to follow all of our social media posts throughout the month and join the conversation!

Our CEO is on Twitter!
