why children?

Because none of us can move forward if half of us are held back.

Child sponsorship

When you sponsor a child with Plan Ireland, you can see the impact you are having, following them and their community every step of the way.

Because I am a Girl

Because I am a Girl is a global equality movement which transforms communities in developing countries by empowering girls.

What we Do

Global in scale, yet grassroots in approach, Plan strives to deliver impact in everything that we do.

Join our Treks and Challenges

Trek the Himalayas. Take on the bustling Great Ethiopian Run. Visit Rural Africa.

Together, our small actions can drive big change .. and we can have some fun along the way.

When Disasters Strike,
Plan is There

Plan mobilises people and resources quickly when disaster strikes to protect children and ensure their immediate and long-term needs are met.
From natural disasters to conflict zones, we are on-the-ground doing what is needed where it is needed the most.

Get Involved with Plan

Plan focuses on securing lasting results for those most in need. To achieve this, we don't need 'donors' - we need sponsors, investors, partners, campaigners, members.
We need you.

What Makes Plan Different?

For 76 years we’ve been taking action and standing up for every child’s right to fulfil their potential. On a daily basis, our energy is devoted to making a difference for children living in poverty.

We stand up for children’s rights. We listen to the children we work with and find the best way forward together.

We trust in what we do and we’re open, accountable and honest.

We are different. We are Plan International.
