About Plan Nederland
Plan Nederland, founded in 1975, is member of the worldwide organization Plan International. The organization was founded in 1937, when the British war correspondent John Langdon Davies grew concerned about the plight of children in the Spanish Civil War. Plan is an international, humanitarian, child-focused development organization without political, religious or commercial goals. Plan is working for a world in which all children can develop fully, in which girls and boys enjoy equal rights and opportunities, and a world that respects the rights and dignity of children and adults.
Plan works for sustainable poverty reduction and better living conditions for children in developing countries, with a special focus on equal rights and opportunities for girls. Plan has child-focused community projects in 52 countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America and advocates for children’s rights and compliance with the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Specifically for emergency disaster relief, Plan provides humanitarian assistance when natural disasters, drought, famine, epidemics and armed conflicts threaten the lives and future of (large) populations. Plan provides emergency relief and contributes to reconstruction in the areas where the organisation works.
