Plan International est une organisation indépendante de développement et d’aide humanitaire qui fait progresser les droits des enfants et l’égalité des filles.
Nous croyons au pouvoir et au potentiel de chaque enfant. Mais cela est souvent influencé par la pauvreté, la violence, l’exclusion et la discrimination. Et ce sont les filles qui sont les plus touchées.

En travaillant avec les enfants, les jeunes, nos sympathisants et nos partenaires, nous luttons pour un monde juste, s’attaquant aux causes profondes des défis auxquels sont confrontées les filles et tous les enfants vulnérables.
Nous soutenons les droits de l’enfant depuis la naissance jusqu’à l’âge adulte. Et nous permettons aux enfants de se préparer et de réagir aux crises et à l’adversité. Nous pilotons les changements de pratiques et de politiques au niveau local, national et mondial en utilisant notre portée, notre expérience et nos connaissances.
Nous construisons de puissants partenariats pour les enfants depuis plus de 80 ans et sommes maintenant actifs dans plus de 70 pays.
