Plan has been operating in Paraguay since 1994, helping poor children and their communities to access their rights to education, health, protection, food security and sustainable livelihoods.
Paraguay is the second poorest country in South America. Approximately 1,000,000 people, or 18% of the population, live off less than US$2 per day.
Plan works in Paraguay with more than 24,370 sponsored children - and through them we benefit an additional 150,000 people living in 470 rural communities in the poorest districts of the country.
