About Plan International

We strive to advance children’s rights and equality for girls all over the world. As an independent development and humanitarian organization, we work alongside children, young people, our supporters and partners to tackle the root causes of the challenges facing girls and all vulnerable children. We support children’s rights from birth until they reach adulthood and 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. For over 80 years we have been building powerful partnerships for children, and we are active in over 75 countries.

Plan International Indonesia has been operating in Indonesia since 1969, according to the Memorandum of Understanding with the Government of Indonesia. In 2017, Plan International Indonesia transformed into Yayasan Plan International Indonesia; registered by the Ministry of Law and Human Rights. This transformation aims to reach more children, especially girls in Indonesia.


Yayasan Plan International Indonesia is committed to continuing and securing resources on CEFM prevention, reduction, and elimination in Indonesia. CEFM has been a priority of Plan International advocacy in Asia and so is Indonesia. While evidence-based influencing and campaigns continue and are enhanced, interventions at the grassroots level are necessary particularly to address the impact of COVID-19 on increasing vulnerabilities that become driving factors of the high prevalence of CEFM in Indonesia.
