Safeguarding Children and young people

Plan International Canada is committed to the gender responsive safeguarding of Children and Young People from all forms of violence. We take very seriously our responsibility to ensure that we, as an organization, and anyone who represents us, do not in any way harm, abuse or commit any other act of violence against Children and Young People or place them at risk of the same.

Help us protect children and young people

If you see a photo on any Plan International website that depicts children without dignity, respect or regard for privacy, contact us at or call 1-800-387-1418 ext. 201.

If you see your photo or your child's photo

We seek to obtain consent for the use of all photos. Nonetheless, if you see your own photo or your child's photo, and do not wish it to appear, you should contact us; we shall remove it promptly.

Identification of children

It should not be possible for a child to be identified or contacted either via a Plan International website or as a result of a visitor using one of our websites. If you are concerned that a child could be identified, contact us at or call 1-800-387-1418 ext. 201.

Children's names

We never use children's full names on our websites. At most you will see a child's first name and the name of the district where the child lives. If we change a child's name in a story for their protection, then we say so. The names are not all real but the stories are.

Photos on this website

Photos used on Plan International Canada’s website feature children from communities and groups which we work with, but it should not be inferred that they are necessarily victims of violence.
