I. Background

About Yayasan Plan International Indonesia (YPII)

Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian organization 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 its 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. Plan International have been building powerful partnerships for children for over 75 years and are now active in more than 70 countries. Aiming to reach 100 million girls globally and 1 million in Indonesia by 2022, in June 2017, Plan In
ternational has set up a locally registered national foundation called Yayasan Plan International Indonesia (Plan Indonesia), focusing on promoting gender equality and girls’ rights.

Thematic and Geographical Area

In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 goals for a better world by 2030. These goals who are better known as the goals of Sustainable Development Agendas (SDGs) 2030, were envisioned to have the power to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change. Guided by the goals, Plan Indonesia aimed to work together with governments, businesses, civil society and the general public to work together to build a better future for children and youth, particularly girls. Based on the commitment of these goals to leave no one behind, Plan Indonesia have devised four global outcome areas to empower children to realise their potential and bring about equality for girls.

Plan Indonesia focuses on girls and young women, working together with communities, organizations, men and boys, in the following thematic issues:
