Joined-up approach to disastersOur Safe Schools Global Programme aims to protect children's lives by building safe infrastructure, as well as educating children on early warning, evacuation and wider safety measures.
Partnership builds safety culturePlan International Hong Kong's partnership with the Prudence Foundation, the charitable arm of Prudential Corporation Asia, supports children in particularly vulnerable parts of Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines to develop a safe school environment.
“We believe the best results come from governments, humanitarian organisations and the private sector working together,” says Marc Fancy, Executive Director of the Prudence Foundation.
Children as agents of changeChildren are central to our resilience programmes. In Indonesia, where the risk of flooding is high, students are using theatre and presentations to help others prepare for disasters.
Through our partnership with the Prudence Foundation, over 7,000 students have learned how to be safer in emergencies. Our global work has reached 622,000 children in 33 countries.
