Plan Ecuador

Plan started working in Ecuador in 1962, in the urban marginal areas of the City of Guayaquil. Today, more than 800,000 persons (400,000 girls and boys) participate in our projects across Azuay, Bolívar, Cañar, Chimborazo, Cotopaxi, Guayas, Loja, Los Ríos, Manabí, Pichincha and Santa Elena provinces.

We work in over 1,000 communities to ensure that girls, boys and adolescents in the country can enjoy a dignified life by fully exercising their rights.

The main groups we work with are girls, boys and adolescents living in situations of vulnerability and inequality.

Where we work in Ecuador


Plan’ core areas of activity include:

  • promoting safe, healthy, affectionate and stimulating environments for children.
  • improving food security
  • supporting  a ‘good treatment culture’ among children, teenagers and adults
  • fostering spaces for children and teenagers to express themselves and participate in decisions affecting their lives.
