The Children's Rights Organization Plan International wants a fair world where all children's rights and equality are realized. That is why the Plan will particularly improve the lives and the protection of girls in developing countries. Religiously and politically unconstitutional Plan was established in 1937 and in Finland started operations in 1998. We work in more than 70 countries.
We improve the lives of children in eight areas:
Every child has the right to high-quality education. Training is an effective way to break the cycle of poverty.
Thousands of children still die in developing countries for diseases that are avoidable and treatable.
In disasters children are more likely to be exposed by adults, for example epidemics, malnutrition and human rights violations.
PARTICIPATION OF CHILDREN
Each child has the right to participate in decision-making in their lives in families, schools, communities and the state.
Violence against the child is a human rights violation. Violence threatens the life, development, education and participation of the child.
Children living in poverty are very vulnerable to economic shifts and disasters, and experience the consequences of poverty as the first.
WATER AND SANITATION
Every child has to have clean drinking water as well as valid bathing and bathing facilities.
SEXUAL AND REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH
Pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases make it difficult for many young people and children to live.
