Our work started 81 years ago. Yet, we are always starting over. Today, there is a child who is lacking an education, or a girl who is on the brink of early marriage. There are communities recovering from disasters and floods, and entire regions suffering from food shortages.
These days remind us that the road to a more equitable world is rife with barriers—but hope isn’t hard to find, and determined people of all ages and genders will not be slowed down.
In Plan’s 80-year history, it is astounding and inspiring to see that many donors have been a part of Plan for 40, 50, even 60 years!
In 2018 and beyond, we’ll continue to strive for a just world that advances children’s rights and equality for girls. Our journey is constant – and we’re glad you’re on it with us.
This month, we’re celebrating everyone who gave back so that children around the world could move from a life of poverty to a future filled with opportunity.
This month, we're sharing incredible impact stories from sponsors and former sponsored children.
Whether you’re a child sponsor, a donor, or a supporter, we’re thankful that you’ve taken a stand to fight for equality and empower children everywhere.
While forces like child marriage, trafficking, and even natural disasters often hold girls back from reaching their full potential, together we can strive to achieve equality.
While we come from different places, backgrounds, and experiences, we have one overall goal in mind: We want to change lives for the better.
