Plan International is a global movement for change, mobilizing millions of people around the world to support social justice for children in developing countries.

Founded in 1937, we are one of the oldest and largest international development organizations, working in partnership with millions of people around the world to end global poverty. Not for profit, independent and inclusive of all faiths and cultures, we have only one agenda: to improve the lives of children.

Our vision

Our vision is of a world in which all children realize their full potential in societies that respect people's rights and dignity.

Our mission

Plan International aims to achieve lasting improvements in the quality of life of children, families and communities in developing countries. We do this through a process of collaboration that unites people across cultures, adding meaning and value to their lives.
