Plan UK

Plan UK

We work with some of the world's poorest children, in countries where one out of five die before the age of five, and those who survive often go hungry and have no chance of learning to read or write. We sit down with these children, their parents and the community to plan practical ways to provide all the things we take for granted, so that together we build schools, drill wells, train health workers and help families support themselves.

We seek to ensure that children are actively involved in the decision-making process, working with adults who have learnt to value their contribution. This work is possible because a million people across the world sponsor a child with Plan and in doing so benefit many other children and entire communities. The aim is that when we leave 10-15 years later the children have a better start in life, know their rights and have the confidence to claim them for the next generation. Their energy can provide the impetus to change their world.
