Plan has been working in the Philippines since 1961, helping poor children to realise their rights to health care, education, protection and a high quality of life.
We work in 420 communities nationwide. More than 80,000 families benefit from our projects.
Currently, we are promoting the Learn Without Fear campaign which is working towards making schools safe learning environments, free from physical, sexual and emotional abuse. Research conducted among 2,442 children from 3 provinces has shown that 50 to 70% of children in elementary school and 60% in high school have experienced violence in school.
The campaign, seeks to empower children to claim their right to a good education, to encourage them to maximise their opportunities and to ensure they are learning in an environment where they can truly enjoy being children.
