Plan International was founded over 75 years ago with a mission to promote and protect the rights of children. Today, Plan International is a global organisation that is active in over 70 countries to advance children’s rights and equality for girls.
The Aflatoun programme aims to empower girls and guarantee that they stay in school and transition to secondary education. There is a big component of involving the families and community. The programme happens in the classroom (boys and girls) with teachers that were trained, and also in clubs only for girls. Girls organize activities for the school community. The programme is implemented under the Credit Suisse sponsorship.
