Our people

We strive for a fair and just world for girls

At Plan International UK, we come to work every day because we won’t stop until we create a just and fair world for girls - a vital step in building a better world for all children. It’s our people’s passion, commitment, expert knowledge and skills that enable us to create lasting change for children who need it most. 

We listen to the experts 

To find the best solutions to the problems children face we listen to the experts – the children themselves. We have learnt the best approach is to trust in people to find their own solutions and children and young people’s ideas are central to the decisions and plans that affect their lives. 

We use local knowledge 

Our work requires a deep understanding of the communities we work with, so at least 90 per cent of our staff in the field are from the countries we work in.

“Poverty and inequality disproportionately affect women and children and there is still much to be done if we are to ensure children’s and girls' voices are heard and their rights realised. Plan International UK’s work on children’s rights and equality for girls is inspirational and I am working with staff, the Youth Advisory Panel, trustees, partners, supporters and the wider organisation to create a fairer world.”
