Everyone at Plan, from our directors to our field staff to our fundraisers, is passionate about one thing – improving the lives of children.
We listen to the experts
To find the best solutions to the problems children face we listen to the experts – the children themselves. We have learnt the best approach is to trust in people to find their own solutions and children and young people’s ideas are central to the decisions and plans that affect their lives.
We use local knowledge
Our work requires a deep understanding of the communities we work with, so at least 90 per cent of our staff in the field are from the countries we work in. Plan employs over 8,000 staff around the world, all of whom are deeply committed to helping children and their communities. We also work with 70,000 community volunteers.
