Plan India is continually striving to advance children’s rights and equality for girls thus creating a lasting impact in the lives of vulnerable and excluded children and their communities. As a step in this direction, we have been organising the National Conference on Plan for Every Child (P4EC).
The Plan for Every Child (P4EC) National Conference organised by Plan India in solidarity with national and international efforts focusses on reaching out to every child in difficult circumstances, especially girls and young women in building their agency and leadership to achieve SDGs. P4EC has been a unique conference every year bringing experts from all over the world to the table to bring diverse perspectives and present solutions to the complex issues related to child protection, health, education, participation, violence against girls, equality, early childhood care, sexual and reproductive health and so on.
Plan India has successfully organised three National P4EC conferences in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2021 in New Delhi. The P4EC was launched in 2016 in partnership with Ministry of Women and Child Development and Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment, Government of India. The first edition of the P4EC in 2016 was on the theme of “Children in Difficult Circumstances”; which was followed by the second edition in 2017 on “Leave no Girl Behind” and the third edition in 2018 on “Girls Get Equal”. The 2021 conference was organised under the theme of ‘Build Back Better with Girls’.
