Make a donation

Children urgently deserve to grow up in a better world. One full of possibilities. Where they feel safe and supported. Where they can learn and grow. And where being a girl doesn’t hold anyone back.  

Your donations bring this better world closer. Providing water points that give children safe, clean water to drink. Or safe spaces where children fleeing disasters can find comfort. Or lessons in gender equality to equip the next generation of changemakers.   

Together we ensure children and young people get more of what they need to thrive right now. Whether you choose to give regularly or a single gift, thank you for helping protect children’s rights and keep girls safe.

The tools for school: Muta’s story 

Muta, 11, found it desperately hard to stay in school. It’s 8km from her home in Cambodia. She didn’t always have enough to eat. And her spare time was full of chores: 

“I wake up at 4am, clean the pans, wash the dishes and then walk to school. I sometimes have to study without any breakfast. I feel tired, and sometimes, I sleep in class.”  

Things have now changed. Muta’s upped her studying with help from a scholarship, new bike and catch-up classes through Plan International.  

Muta’s parents also had support to grow their farm. This means less chores and more nutritious food to help Muta study: “My results are getting better,” says Muta.

Creating a chain of change

“I want to be a teacher when I grow up as I want to teach my brothers and children in my village so they don’t have to walk so far away from their homes.”  

— Muta, 11, Cambodia.
