Plan works to achieve lasting improvements for children living in poverty in developing countries, through a process that unites people across cultures and adds meaning and value to their lives.

Founded in 1937, Plan is one of the oldest and largest international development agencies in the world. We work in 49 developing countries across Africa, Asia and the Americas.

Plan directly supports more than 1,300,000 children and their families, and indirectly supports an estimated further 9,000,000 people who live in communities that are working with Plan.

Plan is independent, with no religious, political or governmental affiliations.
