Frequently Asked Questions

What are Gifts of Hope?

Gifts of Hope are a tax deductible donation to Plan International. They're a gift that represent true change for girls, their families and their communities. By choosing a Gift of Hope, you’re not just giving a heartfelt gift to a loved one – you’re helping create a world where all children can thrive, and girls can take their rightful place as equals. You’re supporting communities to survive disaster, ensuring children and mothers are given a healthy start to life, and empowering girls to achieve their dreams. A better now for her, a better future for everyone. Pretty amazing, isn’t it?


What happens when I buy a gift?

Once you choose your gift (or gifts!), we’ll send you a physical card or digital card you can forward via email that shows the gift in action. Then all you need to do is write your personal message and forward it on to someone special. Just want to support our work? Buy one for yourself and proudly display it on your mantelpiece!


Where does the money go?

Our Gifts of Hope provide tangible examples of some of the many ways your gift can support children and break down the barriers holding girls back all around the world. To ensure we can best serve the communities in which we work, your gift will be put to work where it will have the greatest impact, supporting children facing violence, children being denied an education, and children being held back from achieving their potential.


Your gift in action

Mai left school at the age of 17 when she felt pressure to marry and have children young. Luckily, she married her high school sweetheart and they have two healthy daughters. But leaving school early was heartbreaking for Mai.

Supported by Plan International, Mai joined the International Youth Advisory Council, and became a mentor in the community Girls’ Club. She now feels empowered to make decisions - for herself and her daughters.

"I want to change the future of my two daughters. I will try my best to send them to school, teach them to dream and grow wings to fly," says Mai.
