About Plan Myanmar (History)

Plan International is an international child and youth development organization dedicated to promote the realization of children and young people’s rights, especially girl’s rights, in both development and humanitarian settings. Plan International in Myanmar is supporting a broad spectrum of initiatives designed to support integrated child development and youth empowerment outcomes that are strategically aligned with the national government’s priorities. Sectors of focus include: Early Childhood Care and Development (ECCD), Maternal, Newborn and Child Health and Nutrition (MNCHN), Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), Resilience and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR), Child Protection, Education, Adolescent Development, Youth Economic Empowerment, Youth-Led Peace Building and Social Cohesion, Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR), and Non-Communicable Disease (NCD) Prevention among young people.

Plan’s work at country level draws from and contextualizes Plan’s global program strategies and frameworks, seeking to embody worldwide values and principles for development and humanitarian work to support the needs of girls and children in Myanmar. To accomplish this the Country Office is supported by a network of Plan national offices with whom the country team partners to implement the country strategy. The federated network of Plan members is a key stakeholder group in our work.
