We’re accountable to the children and communities we work with, and to the sponsors and donors who make that work possible. It’s very important to us that our finances are clear and honest, so we use internal and external auditors to monitor our finances and day-to-day management.
We’re also one of the few global organisations to publish combined worldwide financial statements detailing our fundraising and spending. See Plan’s worldwide annual report and accounts.
Plan adheres to several international standards and quality assurance mechanisms.
The effectiveness of our programmes
Plan strives for effective and efficient programmes. Plan's programme accountability and learning system (PALS) is designed to guide Plan staff in their planning, monitoring and evaluation.
Our reporting includes concrete outputs and actions taken by Plan, as well as longer term changes. Most of our work is evaluated internally and externally, including young people and the other beneficiaries. In addition to project monitoring and evaluation, Plan undertakes national and thematic reviews of our programmes.
We are interested in learning from our experiences. We share and replicate our successful approaches and continuously seek to improve our programmes.
Internally, Plan publishes the rules and policies governing our work. Plan UK is audited internally by Plan’s Global Assurance team and externally by PricewaterhouseCoopers.
