About Plan

Plan is a global children’s charity, helping young girls and boys in communities around the globe thanks to your one-off donations and ongoing sponsorship. We work with children in the world’s poorest countries to help them build a better future.

  • working with communities to prepare for and survive disasters
  • inspiring children to take a lead in decisions that affect their lives 
  • enabling families to earn a living and plan for their children’s future

With your support children, families and entire communities have the power to move themselves from a life of poverty to a future with opportunity.
