Plan India, a member of Plan International Federation, is a nationally registered independent child development organization committed to creating a lasting impact in the lives of vulnerable and excluded children, their families and communities. For over 35 years, Plan India and its partners have improved the lives of million children in 14 states by providing them access to protection, basic education, proper health care, a healthy environment, livelihood opportunities and participation in decisions which affect their lives.
Children at the Centre: Plan India believes in Child Centred Community Development (CCCD) – an operational standard that advocates the basic rights of children to lead a better life. This rights based approach enables children, their families and communities to become active and leading participants in their own development.
It enhances their capacity and opportunity to work together with others in order to bring long term sustainable positive change to their lives.
