Plan has been in Bolivia since 1969, working with children, families and communities so they can have fulfill their right to health, education, protection and participation.
Our interventions are based on the Child Centred Community Development approach, where we work with children, their families and their communities to identify problems and implement solutions.
Currently, we are supporting local governments in their formulation of rights-based Municipal Development Plans (PDMs) based on community development plans designed with the participation of children, adolescents and adults to build a child-friendly municipal culture.
Our programmes help 48,500 children and adolescents from 1,100 communities in rural Bolivia.
