Plan Canada - A Plan For The Children 1 of 5
See what PLAN Canada is doing to help children around the world lead a richer fuller life. Plan is a global movement for change, mobilising millions of people around the world to support social justice for children in developing countries.
Founded in 1937 as Foster Parents Plan, we are one of the world's oldest and largest international development agencies, working in partnership with millions of people around the world to end global poverty. Not for profit, independent and inclusive of all faiths and cultures, we have only one agenda: to improve the lives of children. Join us and plan to change the world.
Through programs in more than 65 countries, we give children, families and communities the tools they need to break the cycle of poverty and build sustainable solutions with measurable results for improving their own lives.
We make it possible for people living in poverty to use their ideas, talents and energy to make better lives for themselves. We engage children in shaping their own future.
Along with well-trained volunteers - numbering over 60,000 worldwide - Plan works with communities to build schools, educate teachers, dig wells, open health clinics, provide vocational training, innovate to improve crop yields, give people access to loans to start small businesses, provide humanitarian assistance when disaster strikes, and much more. We do whatever is needed to create an environment in which children, families and communities can thrive.
We are supported in our work by over one million donors worldwide and by millions of local people who are active participants in their own development. Each year our work impacts the lives of more than 3.5 million families and their children in over 25,000 communities.
We encourage all our members to learn more about Plan Canada. Plan Canada is an established organisation that works with people all over the world.
