We strive for a just world, working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners. PI is currently working across 19 fundraising countries and supports millions of children, their families and their communities in 50 Plan’s programme countries.

In September 2019 Plan International Vietnam formally started transformation with a strategic choices workshop attended by the extended CMT for Vietnam, and the APH region representatives. In October 2019 a second extended CMT workshop was held – the design workshop – where a design plan was developed for translating these strategic choices into action.
