Experience Your Life is excited to welcome Plan Canada Because I AM a Girl!
Every day, millions of girls around the world are denied their basic human rights – simply because they’re girls. Because I am a Girl is a global initiative working to end gender inequality and promote girls’ rights.
To learn more about Because I am a Girl and the opportunities available to you, come out to the Experience Your Life Expo this September 25th at the Delta Hotel in Toronto. REGISTER NOW for FREE @ experienceyourlife.eventbrite.com

Our vision is of a world in which all children realize their full potential in societies that respect people’s rights and dignity.
Plan International aims to achieve lasting improvements in the quality of life of children, families and communities in developing countries. We do this through a process of collaboration that unites people across cultures, adding meaning and value to their lives.
CHILDREN ARE AT THE HEART OF EVERYTHING WE DO.
Plan International works with communities to build schools, educate teachers, dig wells, open health clinics, provide vocational training, innovate to improve crop yields, provide loans to start small businesses, and much more.
Funds from child sponsorship, community sponsorship, project sponsorship, partnerships and grants, Gifts of Hope, and one-time donations, including emergency relief efforts, make it possible for us to do whatever is needed to create an environment where children, families and communities in the developing world can thrive.
On average, Plan International works with communities for 10 to 12 years before successfully phasing out. During that time, we help community members build the capacity and skills needed to grow their community for generations to come.
