The first 1000 days of a child’s life can decide their future

Early childhood development

A new life is something to be celebrated and nurtured. A child’s early years of age, spanning from the moment of conception up until their second birthday, will influence their health, growth and learning potential for the rest of their lives. We want every newborn baby to have the best possible start in life. Learn more about our work here.

We’re working with communities to build climate resilience 

Climate Action

The world’s poorest communities have contributed the least to global heating, but they are the most exposed to its impacts. For those living on the most fragile land and without the resources to adapt, coping with climate-related disasters is becoming harder and harder.

Learn more about Plan International's work across south-east Asia and the Pacific, and how we help communities adapt to climate change.

Education is the quickest path to girls’ equality

Girls' Education

As the charity for girls’ equality, we know education is the quickest path to achieving an equal world; one where all children can live happy and healthy lives, and where girls can take their rightful place as equals.

When a girl is educated, not only is she given choices for her future and opportunities that can change her life – she can change the world.

Learn more about the barriers girl's face accessing education.
