Are you ready to #stopthesetback with plan international Canada?

Join our School Fundraising program to unlock exciting learning materials and activities about your favorite Gifts of Hope.

As it stands, the COVID-19 pandemic could almost double the number of people suffering from hunger, pushing global numbers to more than a quarter of a billion by the end of 2020. And it is children in the remote, scarcely-resourced areas who will be hardest hit – especially the most vulnerable girls, who are already denied so many rights.

COVID-19 is unravelling decades of progress for girls’ equality. Together, we must stand with girls and stop the setback. Register today to provide your classroom the opportunity to exercise their global citizenry while learning about current global issues and how to #StopTheSetback!
