PLAN INTERNATIONAL UK
Since 1937, Plan International has been promoting the rights of children around the world. They work with their partners in more than 45 countries, making sure children in some of the poorest communities are safe, and protected from violence.
They provide access to essential services including education, healthcare, clean water and toilets. They are there when disasters happen, providing emergency relief and supporting communities to recover, rebuild and develop their resilience.
Through their "Because I am a Girl" campaign, they are also dedicated to improving girls’ lives globally – including right here in the UK. By working with young people, they are challenging gender inequality, campaigning against harmful practices like child marriage and enabling girls everywhere to build a better future.
Because I want to live in a world where every child, especially every girl, knows their value - and the communities they’re growing up in – and the world around them -values them too.
OUR ONLY WORLD
Their mission is to inspire and raise awareness of the fight against marine plastic pollution and its effect on our only world. Their first project is the manufacture of a water refill station using a local supply chain and recycled fishing nets collected off Cornish beaches, this makes it a low carbon footprint initiative supporting the circular economy. We are a not for profit registered charity and all proceeds are used to fund marine conservation. They have been awarded funding from Cornwall Council to site 15 units along the Cornish coastline from Penzance to Saltash. They have started work and are collaborating with communities about installation!
