Plan India advances children’s rights and equality for girls. We create a lasting impact on the lives of vulnerable and excluded children and their communities.
Since 1979, we have improved the lives of millions of children and young people alongside our partners. In that time, we have supported children and young people to stay safe, go to school, improve their health, make a good living and participate in decisions that affect their lives.
Our key areas of work include:
- Adolescent health, maternal health and child survival
- Water, sanitation and hygiene
- Quality education
- Youth employment
- Child protection
- Disaster risk management
Through our programmes and influencing, our goal is to improve the lives of 10 million girls and young women. We will ensure that girls across India can learn, lead, decide and thrive.
