Plan is committed to ensuring the security, privacy and dignity of all the children that we work with.
Help us protect children
If you see a photo on any Plan website that depicts children without dignity, respect or regard for privacy, contact our Global Child Protection Officer.
If you see your photo or your child's photo
We seek to obtain consent for the use of all photos. Nonetheless, if you see your own photo or your child's photo, and do not wish it to appear, you should contact us; we shall remove it promptly.
Identification of children
It should not be possible for a child to be identified or contacted either via a Plan website or as a result of a visitor using one of our websites. If you are concerned that a child could be identified, please contact our Global Child Protection Officer.
We never use children's full names on our websites. At most you will see a child's first name and the name of the district where the child lives. If we change a child's name in a story for their protection, then we say so. The names are not all real; the stories are.
Photos on this website
Photos used on this campaign website feature children from communities and groups which Plan works with, but it should not be inferred that they are necessarily victims of violence.
The law about photos
Laws on how we obtain, use and store photos vary significantly in the countries where Plan works. In some countries, culture, tradition and religion also play a role, and we seek to respect them.
To find out about the law that applies in the United Kingdom, where Plan has its headquarters, see the UK Data Protection Act 1998.
