• Plan Internacional España ~ Plan International
Plan Internacional España is the Spanish affiliate of Plan International (also known simply as “Plan”), an international development organisation founded in Spain in 1937 by British journalist John Langdon-Davies with the name “Foster Parents Plan for Children in Spain,” a program to provide food, shelter and education to children whose lives had been virtually destroyed during the Spanish Civil War.
Today, Plan operates in 51 countries across Africa, the Americas, and Asia, working in an estimated 58,000 local communities with some 600,000 volunteers to promote and protect children’s rights through development and social assistance efforts focused primarily on children and their families.
Plan International’s programmes around the world are supported through the efforts of 21 national organizations responsible for fundraising and raising awareness about the organization’s work in their respective countries. In 2001, Plan returned to Spain to open an affiliate office, which it has continued to operate for the past 15 years as Plan Internacional España.
