Plan International is an independent international cooperation and humanitarian organisation that advances children’s rights and equality for girls. We support children’s rights from birth until they reach adulthood. We believe in the power and potential of every child and in gender equality. But this is often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination. And it is girls and young women who are most affected. Working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners, we strive for a just world, tackling the root causes of the challenges facing all children and especially girls. We are active in over 80 countries across the world.
The purpose and ambition of Plan International EU Office is to advance children’s rights, equality for girls and youth in particular in the EU’s external action. In line with Plan International’s Global Strategy, One Million Reasons, and the EU Office’s 5-year strategy, we will contribute to ensuring that 100 million girls learn, lead, decide and thrive.
