Plan International Ireland is the new Global Charity Partner of Chelsea Football Club. Chelsea is one of the most popular and successful football clubs in the world, competing in the most-watched competitions globally.
The partnership will use the power of football to help some of the world’s poorest children to fulfil their potential. Initially for three years, it will see Chelsea supporting our work across the world, raising funds and awareness for Plan International Ireland.
Together, Plan International Ireland and Chelsea will develop a football-themed programme, Champions of Change, engaging young people in Colombia, with an ambition to establish more sport-based programmes around the world.
After delivering the project in Colombia, we will expand our innovative approach to other countries in which Plan International Ireland works, across Latin America, Asia and Africa. Together, Plan International Ireland and Chelsea will work to improve the lives of thousands of girls and boys around the world.
