Plan International began operating in Haiti in 1973 to address the biggest inequalities and violations of children’s rights.
In Haiti there are high rates of child marriage, teenage pregnancy, violence, child labour in addition to a lack of education. We are working in collaboration with the Haitian government to support children to realise their full potential and prevent the risks they are exposed to.
By focussing on the key issues faced by the most vulnerable children, especially girls in remote communities, we are working where we are needed most and can have the biggest impact.
Our key areas of work include:
- Ensuring the most vulnerable children have access to a quality education
- Preventing violence, exploitation and supporting children who are survivors of abuse
- Preventing teenage pregnancy.
