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 International started its operations in Fiji in 2017 and acts as the operations support hub to its programmes in other pacific countries including programmes in Fiji itself which focuses on Disaster Risk Management (DRM) and Resilience Building. At present we are implementing two DRM Projects that include the Australian Humanitarian Partnership (AHP) project funded by DFAT.
