Plan has been working in Laos since 2007, helping poor children to realise their rights to education, health and a high quality of life.
In the 300 communities that we work with, there are difficulties accessing adequate healthcare, sanitation and basic education. The communities are impoverished, which can leave them vulnerable.
Plan Laos helps children reclaim their rights through programmes and participatory activities that place children at the centre of their own development.
Currently, among our priorities is supporting Early Childhood Care & Development in communities to secure young children’s right to a good education. This is done both through early-learning centres, co-located with primary schools, and community-based parenting groups.
Plan also works with local organisations and government agencies to ensure education policies protect the children’s right to quality education.
Communities in Laos take charge to adapt to climate change
It's vital that children actively participate.
