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 85 ans, nous bâtissons de puissants partenariats pour les enfants et nous sommes actifs dans plus de 75 pays.

Effective Date







Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian organisation that advances children’s rights and equality for girls. We believe in the power and potential of every child. But this is often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination. And its girls who are most affected.

Working in over 70 developing countries globally, Plan International strives for a just world that advances children’s rights and equality for girls. We engage people and partners to:


  • Empower children, young people and communities to make vital changes that tackle the root causes of discrimination against girls, exclusion and vulnerability.
  • Drive change in practice and policy at local, national and global levels through our reach, experience and knowledge of the realities children face.
  • Work with children and communities to prepare for and respond to crises and to overcome adversity.
  • Support the safe and successful progression of children into adulthood


Our values were developed in close collaboration with staff across the organization, and were approved by the Members' Assembly in June 2016, meaning they apply across the whole of Plan International.  A set of values defines what is important to us. Our values outline how we should work to secure the change we want to see in the world and to achieve our purpose (in italics above). They support the ambitious long-term goals set by our purpose statement, and guide how we can contribute to achieving the ambitious goals in our current Global Strategy, 100 Million Reasons
