Plan International has been working in Ghana to support children, particularly the most marginalised, to exercise their rights for over 25 years.
Working in 637 communities, the majority of which are rural, our work has impacted the lives of 480,000 children.
In Ghana, children, especially girls, suffer from violence at school and in their communities. In addition, there is a lack of quality education and many children drop out of school. As a result, there is a need to address the root causes of these issues.
We work with partners to create safe communities for children that are free from all forms of violence through our child protection programmes.
Our work also ensures children have the opportunity to learn through our quality, basic, inclusive education programme.
We also support families to earn more money and manage it better so their children can thrive.
