Our work

Plan works with millions of children in 58,000 communities in 50 developing countries across the world and is continuously looking for new ways and opportunities to advance the achievement of gender equality and girls' rights

Through the Because I am a Girl campaign, Plan‘s projects will address the barriers to girls completing a quality education of at least 9 years, as well as equip them with the assets they need to safe guard their future, promote gender equality and improve their lives.

Here are just some examples of flagship Because I am a Girl projects that will complement a growing number of innovative and high quality projects planned over the life cycle of the campaign.

For more information on Plan’s work so far in improving the lives of girls, check out our reports
