Developing our 2022 research agenda together with young people
Consulting with youth to ensure our 2022 research and evaluations agenda serves the children and young people we work with and for.
Plan International’s Global Strategy 2017-2022
We want to fulfil the promise of the 2030 Global Goals and strive for a just world that advances children’s rights and equality for girls.
Our strategy is to work with vulnerable children and especially girls so that they can learn, lead, decide and thrive. Within the strategy we have an ambition to transform the lives of 100 million girls. Child sponsorship and grassroots community work are central to our strategy and achieving this ambition.
To realise our ambition, we will focus on specific areas where we can achieve the greatest transformations.
All over the world, girls suffer discrimination in education, health, work and family life. The Sustainable Development Goals cannot be realised without a specific focus on achieving gender equality.
All our programmes will focus on transforming girls’ lives so that they are able to learn, lead, decide and thrive.
In this rapidly-changing world, disadvantaged children face increasing marginalisation. All our work will focus on reaching vulnerable and excluded children, particularly girls, where their rights are most violated. Children are living on city streets, in slums and in villages, or migrating to seek safety, opportunity or shelter. We must be where they are and enable them to realise their rights.
To achieve our ambition, we will build upon existing partnerships and seek out new opportunities for collaboration, in order to expand our reach and grow the girls’ rights movement.
To transform the lives of children and girls, we will strengthen our influence at all levels: from communities to global organisations. We will use knowledge gained through our work to push for better solutions to poverty and real progress in gender equality.
