Our priorities in Water and sanitation
Ensuring children and their communities can access drinking water and sanitary facilities all year round and in emergencies.
Community-participation and leadership
Engaging with communities to help them to develop their own solutions to local problems
Empowerment and sustainability
Children, their families and communities are empowered to participate in all stages of the programmes that affect them.
Gender equity and inclusion
Plan International continues to focus its efforts on marginalised and vulnerable children in remote and rural areas that are hard to access.
Water and environmental sanitation work has greater impact and is more sustainable if it is integrated into the health, education and livelihood sectors.
Working with government and institutions
Ensuring that governments, service delivery agencies and donors appropriately prioritise universal access to water and sanitation.
