About Plan India
Plan in India is part of Plan International, one of the world's largest community development organisations. Plan’s vision is of a world in which all children realise their full potential in societies which respect people’s rights and dignity. Plan is independent, with no religious, political or governmental affiliations.
Plan India is a nationally registered child centred Non Profit Organization. For over 30 years, Plan and our partners have helped communities throughout India to help themselves, so that children have access to their rights including the right to protection, basic education, proper healthcare, a healthy environment, livelihood opportunities and participation in decisions which affect their lives. We encourage children to express their views and be actively involved in improving their communities. Plan India currently works in 11 states in India and has impacted the lives of over a million children.
Plan India’s rights based approach helps bring lasting improvements to the lives of vulnerable children and their communities in India, including children living on the streets and those living in urban homeless families; those with disabilities or affected by HIV; those who are exploited and trafficked; the children of sex workers; and child labourers. Plan India also works to help girls overcome the disadvantages and discrimination they face in everyday life within most communities by promoting education for the girl child.
Plan India is an NGO for children committed to the principles of child rights and equality, and we work to develop the capacity of civil society to meet their own needs by replicating successful development models.
Plan’s work is not possible without the support of funding from individuals, corporations, institutions, foundations and government agencies within India and abroad.
