Founded in 1937, Plan International is one of the oldest and largest charities working to end global poverty. Not for profit, independent and inclusive of all faiths and cultures, Plan has only one agenda: to improve the lives of children. Plan is also the organization behind Because I am a Girl, a global initiative to end gender inequality, promote girls’ rights and lift millions of girls – and everyone around them – out of poverty.
Plan works in more than 65 countries around the globe, including 50 developing countries across Africa, Asia and the Americas. Last year, Plan’s work impacted the lives of over 165 million people – including 78.1 million children in over 90,000 communities around the world.
