Our Goals

Our goal is to be the leading child development organisation in India, known for its credibility and the lasting impact it creates in the lives of vulnerable and excluded children and their communities. Plan India's programmes looks to reach out to two million children directly and five million children indirectly through advocacy and policy influence.

On 20th November 1989, the United Nations adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), a landmark for human rights. For the first time, the world witnessed a treaty that sought to address the human rights of children and set a minimum standard for the protection of these rights.

The Government of India ratified the conversion on the Rights of the Child, on 12th November 1992, expressing its commitment to the children of India. The convention provides a framework for Plan's work around the world. In India, this can be seen in our six goals.

  • Child Survival, Growth and Optimal Development
  • Water, Sanitation and Hygiene
  • Quality and Holistic Education
  • Employability and Economic Empowerment
  • Disaster Risk Reduction
  • Protection from abuse, neglect and exploitation
