Plan has worked in Kenya since 1982, helping poor children to access their rights to health, education, sanitation and protection.
Today, more than 800,000 people in community-based organisations and children’s clubs, as well as farmers, youth and women’s groups benefit from our work.
We focus on addressing causes of poverty and on managing different cultural practices that hinder the growth and development of children, especially girls. Plan strives to reduce poverty, raise children’s voices, support orphans and vulnerable children, and attend to those with special needs, such as the disabled.
