Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian organisation that advances children’s rights and equality for girls.
With more than 80 years of experience, Plan International strives for a just world, working together with children, young people, supporters and partners. Today, we work in more than 75 countries and in 2020 we reached 26.9 million girls. Our ambition is to ensure that 100 million girls learn, lead, decide and thrive.
Plan International EU Office works with the European Union (EU) institutions to influence the EU external action in favour of children’s rights and equality for girls. The EU is one of the world’s largest and most important development and humanitarian actors, and influencing its policies, programmes and diplomatic actions has the potential to positively affect the lives of hundreds of millions of children in developing countries. To put it simply, we push the EU to do more and do it better so that no girl is left behind. We do this by focusing on three priorities:
- Contributing to a global girl’s rights movement
- Ensuring all children have the education and skills they need to succeed in life
- Securing more, better, pro-poor aid, with a focus on girls
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.
