Plan International began operating in Guinea in 1989 to address the biggest inequalities and violations of children’s rights.
In Guinea there is a lack of education and health care. In addition, violations of children’s rights such as child marriage, female genital mutilation, child labour and abuse are commonplace.
Our work aims to address these issues and contribute to the realisation of children’s rights.
Our key areas of work include:
- Preventing diseases such as malaria, tuberculosis and HIV
- Improving access to sexual and reproductive health services
- Promoting inclusive, quality education, including during emergencies
- Protecting children, especially girls, from all forms of violence
- Supporting young people to learn new skills and earn a good income
- Strengthening youth groups to make a bigger impact in advancing children’s rights
- Strengthening the ability of communities to be resilient to disasters.
