Mission

Plan International is working to make long lasting improvement in the lives of children through a Child Centred Community Development approach. It is a private non-profit, non-sectarian and non-Governmental organization.

Disaster Reduction Goal

Plan International’s long-term community development work and disaster response has highlighted gaps in disaster management practice regarding the role of children in disasters. While humanitarian principles and human rights conventions ensure that, increasingly, children are given special protection in emergency situations; children’s right to participation remains largely unrecognized. Children continue to be perceived as mere victims of disasters rather than active agents of change who can make a real difference. Plan has found that children have much to contribute to disaster management efforts, in helping to reduce risks that are a direct threat to themselves as well as the wider population, and in taking direct action that can prevent disasters. Children and youth have a right to participate in efforts to protect them from hazards and vulnerabilities, particularly through their participation in decisions and efforts to address disaster management and risk reduction. This is in line with the international legal framework set under the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child, which upholds children’s rights to protection (article 6) as well as participation (articles 12,13).1
