Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian organisation that advances children’s rights and equality for girls.
We believe in the power and potential of every child. But this is often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination. And it’s girls who are most affected.
Working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners, we strive for a just world, tackling the root causes of the challenges facing girls and all vulnerable children.
We support children’s rights from birth until they reach adulthood. And we enable children to prepare for – and respond to – crises and adversity. We drive changes in practice and policy at local, national and global levels using our reach, experience and knowledge.
We have been building powerful partnerships for children for over 85 years, and are now active in more than 75 countries.
Programme Y.O.D.A is an organisational change programme through which we will change our Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution, revise our processes and working practices in relation to Finance, Grants, Programmes and Projects and Supply Chain Management, and develop a new Project Management and Monitoring, Evaluation, Research and Learning (PMERL) solution.
Our new ERP solution will strengthen our business processes, leading to a more data driven and transparent organisation, which in turn, makes us more efficient and sustainable. Our PMERL solution will enable us to use data-driven insights to design, deliver and evaluate gender-transformative programmes and influencing, so we can reach 100 million girls. Together, they will help us understand the cost and impact of our projects, so we can make more informed decisions as we deliver our global strategy.
