Sierra Leone home
Plan International has been working in Sierra Leone for over 40 years to support children to go to school, stay safe and get good jobs.
Plan International Sierra Leone is driving change to advance children’s rights and equality for girls by working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners.
Our goal is that all vulnerable and excluded
children – particularly girls – access and
complete inclusive quality education from pre-primary to secondary level.
We include young people in internal governance and decision-making processes. Our programmes also build the interest and capacity of girls and young women to engage in social change. We explore new and impactful methods using innovation and technology to tackle gender inequality.
We increase access to quality sexual health services and eliminate harmful practices such as female genital mutilation and early and child marriage.
Every child has the right to live free from violence at home, in school, in public spaces and in their communities. Plan International aims to prevent and respond to violence against children and youth, especially girls and young women, and promote their right to live free from violence and fear.
We increase young people’s access to financial services, financial literacy and entrepreneurship and employment skills training.
