Plan UK

Plan is an international, humanitarian, child-focussed development organisation with no religious, political or governmental affiliations. We work with children, their families and communities in developing countries helping to implement projects in health, education, water and sanitation, and income-generation.

Founded 1937

  • Mission statement

    Plan works with the world’s poorest children so they can move themselves from a life of poverty to a future with opportunity.

  • Aims

    Plan UK aims to:

    • support long-term recovery from diasters and emergencies and help communities prepare for future disasters
    • support young people's ability to protect and look after themselves, earn a living and make informed life choices.
    • contribute to Plan’s global work, including health, sexual and reproductive health, education, water and sanitation, economic security, child protection and child participation.
    • achieve positive change, with and for, boys and girls in the poorest countries. Our campaigns mobilise people to put pressure on decision makers to take action.
