Plan International is a global movement for change, mobilizing millions of people around the world to support social justice for children in developing countries. Founded in 1937, we are one of the oldest and largest international development organizations, working in partnership with millions of people around the world to end global poverty. Not for profit, independent and inclusive of all faiths and cultures, we have only one agenda: to improve the lives of children.
Our vision is of a world in which all children realize their full potential in societies that respect people's rights and dignity.
Plan International aims to achieve lasting improvements in the quality of life of children, families and communities in developing countries. We do this through a process of collaboration that unites people across cultures, adding meaning and value to their lives.
A message from Patsy Anderson, chair, plan international Canada board of directors
Organizational trust and transparency is one of the core responsibilities of the Board. A diverse group, this team brings different perspectives and areas of expertise to the table. We carefully consider strategic decisions – including whether or not Plan International should accept offers from other organizations to join forces. We are committed to maintaining the tradition of excellence in governance and accountability oversight. We owe that to our supporters and all the people whose lives we touch, both here in Canada and around the world.
Chair of the Board
