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 it’s girls who are most affected.
Working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners, we strive for a just world, tackling the root causes of the challenges facing girls and all vulnerable children.
We support children’s rights from birth until they reach adulthood. And we enable children to prepare for – and respond to – crises and adversity. We drive changes in practice and policy at local, national and global levels using our reach, experience and knowledge.
We have been building powerful partnerships for children for over 80 years, and are now active in more than 70 countries.
Plan has been working in Tanzania since 1991, and is delivering programs in 13 regions, including through an extension office in the capital Dodoma, head office in Dar es Salaam, field office for the humanitarian response program (Kibondo), and field offices in six rural and remote locations. We support children to access their rights through our programming in Child Protection, Education, Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health, WASH and Youth Economic Empowerment. Our work includes community-based action, partner strengthening, ajira and advocacy. Disaster risk reduction is integrated in all the work we do, and Plan is committed to providing disaster response support in case of humanitarian disaster. Plan is currently implementing a humanitarian response program in Kigoma region supporting the Burundi refugee emergency in Tanzania.
