Help forgotten children

Plan's Forgotten Children Initiative

Forgotten Children is Plan’s initiative to protect children from exploitation, abuse and neglect. We work with the most vulnerable and marginalised children, ensuring every child gets the childhood they deserve.

Please help forgotten children today with a donation or a regular monthly gift

Reaching the most vulnerable

Every child has the right to a life free from cruelty and suffering. The Forgotten Children initiative offers hope to the most isolated and vulnerable children, the ones living on the streets, at risk of trafficking and child labour, and those who are orphaned and disabled.

The Forgotten Children projects

Our Forgotten Children projects work with the most vulnerable children to provide a safe haven for them, campaign on their behalf, and to make sure they have an education and a future. We currently have projects in Bangladesh, Haiti, India, Indonesia and the Philippines.

  • The Philippines: Nourishing children
    This project works with the isolated and excluded ethnic group the Mangyans. Mangyan children are some of the most disadvantaged children in the Philippines. This project helps Mangyan families to grow larger amounts of diverse and nutritious food throughout the year.
  • Bangladesh: Helping the street children of Dhaka
    This project in Dhaka, Bangladesh, is providing a safe haven for vulnerable youngsters who live and work on the streets. Drop-in and 'spot' centres have already transform the lives of over 6,000 children.
  • India: Enriching children's lives in Mumbai's slums
    This project will take place in the Garib Nagar and Behrampada slums in Central Mumbai. It aims to address health, education, protection and water and sanitation in an integrated way.
  • Indonesia: birth registration
    Enrolling at school and accessing healthcare often rely on children having a birth certificate. Without one, children struggle to access their basic rights.
  • Haiti: Providing a safe environment for children
    In the face of high poverty levels and two large-scale disasters, the situation for children in Haiti is precarious.
