Success Stories

For more than 80 years, we’ve been taking action and standing up for every child’s right to fulfill 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 strive to be open, accountable and honest.

We are different. We are Plan International.
