Founded 78 years ago, Plan International is one of the oldest and largest children’s charities in the world, committed to ending child poverty and promoting children’s rights.
Plan’s work reaches more than 80 million children across 51 countries worldwide.
By improving education, healthcare, water and sanitation and child protection, for example, Plan works to help move some of the world’s poorest children from a life of poverty to a future with opportunity.
Plan and Chelsea are working together to help transform the lives of children across the world through the reach and power of football.
Starting in Colombia, Chelsea and Plan will be harnessing the sport’s appeal to work with teenagers, many of whom might not otherwise get involved in charity projects, to teach them about equality, respect and tolerance.
As part of the partnership, Chelsea’s European shirt will display Plan International’s logo.
