Sudan | Plan International Skip to main content


Plan International has been working in Sudan since 1977. Our work supports vulnerable children and young people to reach their potential in safe communities that respect their rights and gender equality.

There are many refugees in Sudan both from inside the country and from neighbouring countries due to protracted conflicts in the region. In addition, the country’s economy is deteriorating and public expenditure on education and healthcare in shrinking. There is also a high prevalence of child marriage and female genital mutilation.

As a result, the number of children who are out-of-school is increasing, there is a high prevalence of maternal and child mortality and there is a lack of clean water and sanitation.

In response, our main priorities in Sudan are:

  • Education
  • Keeping children safe
  • Health and early childhood development
  • Skills and job opportunities for young people
  • Participation of children in society
  • Water and sanitation
  • Responding to disasters and crises

We work in the states of Kassala, White Nile, North Kordofan and North Darfur. We will soon be expanding to work in the states of Red Sea, Al Gedarif and South Kordofan.
