About Plan International Canada:
Founded in 1937, Plan International is one of the world's oldest and largest international development agencies. The Canadian chapter is Plan's second largest fundraising chapter. Plan International is independent, and inclusive of all faiths and cultures, mobilizing people around the world to support social justice for children in developing countries. It seeks to give children, families, and communities the tools they need to break the cycle of poverty and build sustainable solutions with measurable results for improving their own lives.
Child sponsorships are the largest source of donations (83%). Plan Canada states that these donations are pooled and go to community development projects that benefit all the children and families living in the community. One of Plan's largest initiatives is Because I am a Girl, which aims to end gender inequality, promote girls' rights and lift millions of girls (and the people around them) out of poverty. This initiative organizes projects that provide clean water, food security, health care, education, and access to microfinance training and assistance.
In 2012, Plan International partnered with 51,376 organizations and worked with 90,131 communities, benefitting a total population of 174.2 million people. It implemented 229 programs, through 6,145 projects and 2,431 grants. It trained 642,497 people, including health workers, education workers, agricultural workers, and child protection workers. Additionally, Plan helped build or repair 3,651 health and early childhood care centres, 2,152 schools, 3,796 water points, and 417,911 sanitation facilities in households. Plan also supported 5,366 microfinance organizations and 34,100 savings and loan groups.
