L’ Organisation
Plan International est une organisation humanitaire et de développement indépendante (organisme caritatif/à but non lucratif/de bienfaisance – sélectionnez le terme approprié pour votre public clé) qui fait la promotion des droits des enfants et de l’égalité des filles.
Nous sommes convaincus du pouvoir et du potentiel de chaque enfant. Mais cela est souvent étouffé par la pauvreté, la violence, l’exclusion et la discrimination. Et ce sont les filles qui sont les plus touchées.
En collaborant avec les enfants, les jeunes, nos défenseurs et nos partenaires, nous essayons d’obtenir un monde juste, en abordant les causes des obstacles que les filles et tous les enfants vulnérables doivent surmonter.
Nous soutenons les droits des enfants de la naissance à l’âge adulte. Et nous permettons aux enfants de se préparer et de réagir aux crises et à l’adversité. Grâce à notre portée, notre expérience et nos connaissances, nous favorisons les changements dans la pratique et la politique au niveau local, national et global.
Depuis plus de 80 ans, nous bâtissons de puissants partenariats pour les enfants et nous sommes actifs dans plus de 70 pays.
