Plan International Kenya

Since 1982, Plan International Kenya has been working with communities and the government to raise awareness about the importance of children’s rights.

Plan remain committed to supporting vulnerable and marginalised children and their communities to be free from poverty. Plan Kenya has impacted the lives of millions of children and established strategic partnerships with like-minded allies.

A number of barriers still stand in the way of realising children’s rights in Kenya including child marriage, child labour, trafficking, female genital mutilation and violence. 

We apply a rights-based approach in working towards transformed institutions, laws and communities that respect the rights of children, especially girls, in Kenya.

We are active in 12 counties across the country: Nairobi, Machakos, Kajiado, Tharaka Nithi, Kilifi, Tana River, Kwale, Bondo, Homabay, Kisumu, Marsabit and Turkana. 

We won’t stop until we are all equal.

Our current priorities include:

  • Child protection 
  • Improved access to basic, quality education and early childhood development
  • Quality healthcare including water, sanitation and hygiene, as well as adolescent and child health
  • Youth employability and economic opportunities
  • Resilience building through disaster risk management
  • Scaling the humanitarian response.

Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian organisation that advances children’s rights and equality for girls. We believe 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.

Working together with children, young people, 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 and we enable children to prepare for and respond to crises and adversity. We drive changes in practice and policy at local, national and global levels using our reach, experience and knowledge.

For over 85 years, we have rallied other determined optimists to transform the lives of all children in more than 80 countries.

We won’t stop until we are all equal.
