In Plan’s world, human rights are respected and children realise their full potential as members of society. In addition to development projects and child sponsorship in developing countries, we also work on a national level in Finland, focus on corporate partnerships, advocacy work and communication.
At Plan, we not only listen to children but let them participate in our work and make decisions for themselves.
