Plan International Finland

Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian organisation that advances children’s rights and equality for girls. We strive for a just world, working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners.

Plan has been operating in Finland since 1998. Plan International was founded in 1937.

Plan has no religious or political affiliations. Tens of thousands of Finns support our work and share our mission to remove poverty and fulfill children’s rights and equality for girls across the globe.

We believe that gender equality is central to achieving long-term change. We have a vision of a world that values girls, promotes their rights and ends injustice.

In addition to development projects and child sponsorship in developing countries, we also work on a national level in Finland, focus on corporate partnerships, advocacy work and communication. We not only listen to children but ask them to actively participate in our work and make decisions for themselves.

Plan International Finland receives funding from individual donors, corporate partners, The Finnish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the EU and the UN. Through Plan, your help is delivered quickly and reliably. Plan International works in over 70 countries and runs development programs in 51 countries. There are fundraising national offices in 21 countries, Finland being one of them.
