Plan International Benin

Since 1994, Plan International Benin has been working to advance children’s rights and equality for girls.

Working together with children, young people, communities, supporters and partners, we strive for a just world, tackling the root causes of the challenges girls and vulnerable children face.

We support children’s rights from birth until they reach adulthood, believing in the power and potential of every child, but know this is often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination. And it is girls who are most affected.

In Benin, there is a high mortality rate for children under 5 due to preventable diseases. In addition, adolescents and young people are at risk of sexual and reproductive health problems due to a lack of education. As a result, there are high rates of teenage pregnancy, girls dropping out of school and maternal death.

We won’t stop until we are all equal.

Our priorities include:

  • Ensuring vulnerable young people have access to high quality and safe sexual, reproductive and maternal health services; to ensure they are informed, confident and able to make key decisions about their lives and bodies without fear of violence.
  • Providing children and young people with access to safe, inclusive, quality education and good employment and entrepreneurship opportunities.
  • Protecting young people from all forms of violence and harmful traditional practices.
  • Providing young children with early education and stimulation.
