Rose Caldwell, CEO of Plan International UK, on children’s rights, girls’ education, and localisation

The CEO of Plan International UK, Rose Caldwell, joins us back on the Do One Better Podcast to talk about their work on children’s rights, girls’ education, and their approach to localisation.

We explore why and how Plan International works with local actors, in humanitarian contexts, including youth-led organisations and those focused on girls’ and young women’s rights.

Plan International works with girls and boys growing up in some of the world’s poorest communities, making sure they have access to the education, health care, clean water and future opportunities they need to thrive.
