On Friday 8th March 2024 the world will celebrate International Women's Day. A day to unite and challenge stereotypes of women, broaden perceptions of what is possible and celebrate women’s achievements.

Plan international Australia will work with you to harness the power of International Women’s Day to drive action and raise vital funds to support girls and women around the world in some of the most challenging environments to ensure every child, no matter where they are from, has the right to safety and equality.

Why We Exist

Plan International is a global development and humanitarian organisation, with a special focus on girls and children. We work with over 55,000 communities, across 85 countries, advancing children's rights and equality for girls through education, protection, empowerment and emergency support.

We believe in the power and potential of every child but know this is often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination.

And it is girls who are most affected.

For over 85 years, we have supported children’s rights from birth until they reach adulthood. We enable children to prepare for and respond to crises and adversity and drive changes in practice and policy at local, national and global levels using our reach, experience and knowledge.

We won’t stop until we are all equal.

But we cannot do this alone...

We are asking brands and businesses across Australia, to come together on International Women’s Day to #CountHerIn by raising vital funds to accelerate progress for the next generation of women.

This could be done by:

  • Creating a bespoke product to sell around IWD
  • Donating a percentage of product sales for the week or month of IWD
  • Making a one-off donation
  • Engaging employees to fundraise

We have a dedicated team ready to support you and your team to make it as simple as possible to join the campaign. Our IWD toolkit comes with prepared campaign assets, imagery and content to use across your own channels to connect with your customers and clients through a shared cause.

12 million girls are forced to marry as children every year - every 2 seconds

Every 10 minutes, one adolescent girl dies as a result of violence 

12.5 million girls could be prevented from completing their education due to climate change by 2025.

We can't wait for opportunities;
we must actively seek them,
and when they aren't readily
available, let's create them.

Let's empower ourselves and
each other, and build a world
where gender doesn't limit
our potential.

It's a journey worth embarking
on, and together, we can make
it happen."
