Plan International Australia strives to achieve lasting improvements in the quality of life of children
in developing countries by enabling children, their families and their communities to meet their
basic needs and to increase their ability to participate in and benefit from societies. Our grass
roots development projects address specific problems and issues in communities that contribute
to ongoing poverty and affect children's rights. Our work is designed to bring long term,
sustainable, positive change to communities.
Description of charity's activities and outcomes
In five of the most fragile countries in the world we provided over 630,000 children and their parents with food, cash transfers and livelihood resources to ensure families were able to provide sufficient food and nutrition for their children.
We worked with more than 80,000 people across six countries to increase awareness of disaster risks and the impacts of climate change, and to increase capacity to plan and develop local solutions to mitigate the risks.
Our Water, Sanitation and Hygiene programs enabled over 4,500 people to gain access to an improved water supply, over 32,000 to gain access to new latrines across four countries, and saw over 18,600 people increase their knowledge around safe hygiene practices such as hand washing with soap and safe water storage.
