Jenny's Story

Keeping children in school

Thanks to supporters like you, Plan International is working to improve the educational opportunities of children across the world.

Education has a direct impact on life expectancy and overall health. It’s also a powerful route out of poverty – educated parents are more likely to see the value of education for their children.

“I love being at school – then I can play during break”, says Jenny, aged 7. She has a lot of responsibility at home for such a young girl, but the school day gives her the chance to be a child.


Giving young people skills

Now my life is better. I can generate an income and I know how to manage it.

In Timor-Leste, supporters like you are helping young people to learn the skills they need to run and manage their own businesses, giving them greater independence.

Lenia, 22, was able to start her own business thanks to support from Plan International, something she never thought she'd be able to do. “I started a business in my village, selling popsicles and biscuits,” she explains. “Business is good. I sell out almost every day!”


Providing toilets in emergencies

When thousands of people are displaced, with makeshift camps likely to be their home for weeks and months to come, having access to a decent toilet is vital for keeping them safe and protected from diseases.

Thanks to support like yours, and the help of our local partners on the ground, we’ve set up essential WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) programmes in response to the Rohingya crisis.
