Our values at work | Plan International Skip to main content
Our organisational values are designed to help everyone who works with us to achieve our ambitious goals for children: a just world that advances children’s rights and equality for girls.

We are open and accountable

We create a climate of trust inside and outside the organisation by being open, honest and transparent. We hold ourselves and others to account for the decisions we make and for our impact on others, while doing what we say we will do.

We are inclusive and empowering

We respect all people, appreciate differences and challenge inequality in our programmes and our workplace. We support children, girls and young people to increase their confidence and to change their own lives. We empower our staff to give their best and develop their potential.

We work well together

We succeed by working effectively with others, inside and outside the organisation, including our sponsors and donors. We actively support our colleagues, helping them to achieve their goals. We come together to create and implement solutions in our teams, across Plan International, with children, girls, young people, communities and our partners.

We strive for lasting impact

We strive to achieve significant and lasting impact on the lives of children and young people, and to secure equality for girls. We challenge ourselves to be bold, courageous, responsive, focused and innovative.

Values-Based Leadership, People and Culture

Our shared values and behaviours bind us together and hold us to high standards for how we expect ourselves and those we work with to behave. They are our guiding principles for our ways of working, empowering our staff to make informed decisions across Plan International – creating a learning culture within Plan International, which allows innovation, experimentation and learning from our mistakes.

The values help to foster a culture of openness, accountability and transparency and also to create a learning culture within Plan International, which allows innovation, experimentation and learning from our mistakes.

They are also intended to help us attract new staff who share our ambitious goals for children.
