Plan International ’s vision is of a world in which all children realise their full potential in societies that respect people’s rights and dignity.
Plan International has been working with and on behalf of children for almost 80 years. Today, we work in 51 low and middle income countries across Africa, Asia and the Americas to promote, protect and fulfil children’s rights. We operate at local, national and global levels to challenge the deep rooted causes and effects of inequality and social injustice which drive child poverty and rights’ violations.
Plan International EU Office works with the EU institutions to ensure that the promotion and protection of the rights of the child, with a focus on gender equality, is a priority for the EU’s external action in policy and practice. In pursuit of our goal, we focused on the following priorities in 2014-15:
• Child protection
• Girls’ rights and gender equality
• Youth economic empowerment
• Sustainable Development Goals
• Humanitarian aid
Plan International EU Office represents Plan International to the EU institutions, and acts as a coordination hub on EU issues for Plan International’s European and Country Offices.
