Based on many years of experience, Plan believes that sustainable development of disadvantaged communities can be achieved only if children’s best interests are at the heart of everything we do and if children themselves actively participate in the process.
Child centred community development is the term we use to describe how we aim to do our development work. It’s a rights based approach to development where we support communities to develop the structures and skills they need to provide a safe and healthy environment in which children are able to realise their full potential.
With increased focus on children’s rights, we involve children as active participants in the development process.
In the past our community development programs benefited children, but we worked largely with the adult community members. Now, with increased focus on children’s rights, we involve children as active participants in the development process.
As a result of the success of these changes, Plan has adopted Child Centred Community Development as its program approach. This integrates the more recently developed methods of working with children and our long experience of community development.
We aspire to become the caretaker of God’s most priceless gift to humanity i.e life.
