Our work

Our projects in Africa focus on HIV and AIDS, health, education, governance, water and sanitation, and helping people get the skills they need to earn a living.

We focus on addressing children’s rights in Africa in a number of ways, including our Because I am a Girl campaign, which draws attention to discrimination against girls and women as one of the underlying causes of poverty.

Plan in Africa has actively engaged with governments as part of our Learn without Fear campaign to ensure that children can be educated in a safe and supportive environment.
