Advocacy

Advocate for children's rights

Plan's work with children in over 66,000 communities gives us insight into the realities of the lives of boys and girls in developing countries, and the effectiveness of projects aimed at realising their rights.

Our advocacy work aims to share these insights to influence politicians and decision makers to ensure the development of policies and programmes that work for children around the world.

We are committed to ensuring that boys, girls and adults in the communities in which Plan works have a say in decision making, whether by local councils, national governments or international aid donors such as DFID. We gather evidence, share lessons learned and enable young people to address policy makers directly.

We also raise awareness of development issues among the general public and encourage them to urge their representatives to champion the rights of children and young people in developing countries.

Our advocacy aims to:
