Mission

Plan International USA is part of a global organization that works side by side with the men, women, and children of communities in 50 developing countries to end the cycle of poverty for children and their families. Plan works at the community level to develop customized solutions community by community to ensure long-term sustainability.

Plan strives to achieve lasting improvements in the quality of life of vulnerable children in developing countries by: 1. Meeting the basic needs of children, their families, and their communities, and increasing their ability to participate in and benefit from their societies; 2. Fostering relationships to increase understanding and unity among peoples of different cultures and countries; and 3. Promoting the rights and interests of the world's children.

Programs

Plan International USA supports Plan International's efforts to expand and deepen the impact of its development programs on children and the communities in which they live. It does this through fundraising, program design, oversight efforts, and evaluation platforms and systems. Plan International's approach to meeting these goals and objectives is distinctive and cost-effective. Plan's programs emphasize community empowerment and constructive community engagement with local government actors, creating local ownership of development initiatives and sustainable solutions. Plan's Child-centered Community Development (CCCD) approach places community members at the center of development solutions that promise a better future for their communities. Plan's programs focus around eight core areas: education, protection, economic security, health, sexual health (including HIV/AIDS), emergencies, water and sanitation, and child participation. Some of the projects Plan helps to implement include vaccination and immunization programs; comprehensive health and wellness programs; training of health workers; provision of safe, clean water; classroom construction; vocational training; agricultural programs; and school construction and repair. Our long-term commitment to a community enables us to work together to identify the greatest challenges and build custom solutions that are carried out by the community.
