The first 1000 days have a decisive impact on the future of girls in developing countries. Help support girls’ development. You’ll learn about a girl’s daily progress, from her mother’s pregnancy all the way to her 2nd birthday.

  • Love
    Love

    Girls, especially, are often ignored and given little attention in developing countries. The father’s parental role in many countries is nonexistent. Insecurity and the threat of violence are present in the lives of many children in developing countries before they are even born. With your support we can help mothers have a safer, more secure experience while expecting their child – and also provide a better life for their new born.

  • Education
    Education

    Education helps both the individual and the whole community. It is the most effective way to break the cycle of poverty. An educated mother understands the importance of taking care of a baby and also ensures that her daughter will receive an education. By supporting our work you will be supporting a better future for an entire community.

  • Food
    Food

    Food and clean water are not self-evident for everybody. Getting the right nutrition is important, especially when expecting a baby – for both mother and child. Donations will help ensure that both will receive clean and nutritious food.

  • Health
    Health

    During pregnancy, the mother’s health has a big impact on how the child’s first years of life will be. Thousands of small children in developing countries die due to diseases that are either avoidable or treatable. With the help of your donations illnesses that affect small children – such as diarrhea and malaria – can be avoided.

  • Play
    Play

    Many children living in developing countries cannot have a normal childhood. Playing is crucial in terms of the child’s early development, but often they don’t have the opportunity, because their parents lack information about the importance of childhood play. By supporting Plan’s activities, you will contribute to the quality of life for at-risk children in developing countries.

5 Tärkeää asiaa
Rakkaus

Rakastava vuorovaikutus ja huolenpito ovat välttämättömiä lapsen täysipainoiselle kehitykselle. Erityisesti tytöt jäävät kehitysmaissa usein vaille riittävää huomiota. Lahjoituksesi avulla varmistamme äitien turvallisen odotusajan ja tuemme molempia vanhempia tarjoamaan välittämistä ja läsnäoloa uudelle tulokkaalle.

Koulutus

Koulutus auttaa yksilön lisäksi koko yhteisöä. Se on tehokkain tapa katkaista köyhyyden kierre. Koulutettu äiti ymmärtää huolenpidon tärkeyden ja tukee sekä poikiensa että tyttäriensä koulunkäyntiä. Lahjoittamalla autat pysäyttämään köyhyyden periytymisen.

Leikki

Kehitysmaissa pienet lapset eivät usein saa tarpeeksi virikkeitä, koska vanhemmat eivät tiedä, miten tukea lasten kehitystä. Erityisesti alle kaksivuotiaat lapset kaipaavat vanhemmiltaan monenlaista vuorovaikutusta, kuten laulamista ja lukemista. Lapsen kehityksen tukeminen on parhaita tapoja taata, että lapsi käy myöhemmin koulua.

Terveys

Jo äidin raskaudenaikainen terveydentila vaikuttaa siihen, millainen on tulevan lapsen koko loppuelämä. Vuosittain sadat tuhannet pienet lapset menehtyvät kehitysmaissa tauteihin, jotka olisivat vältettävissä ja hoidettavissa. Lahjoituksesi avulla ehkäistään etenkin pienten lasten sairauksia, kuten ripulia ja malariaa.

Ravinto

Ruoka ja puhdas vesi eivät ole kaikille itsestäänselvyyksiä. Erityisesti odotusaikana oikeanlaisen ravinnon saanti on tärkeää niin äidille kuin lapsellekin. Lahjoitusten avulla varmistamme, että molemmat saavat puhdasta vettä ja ravitsevaa ruokaa.

Give girls a better future.
The first 1000 days are the most important.
Why 1000 days?

The first 1000 days of life have a huge effect on the future of a girl in a developing country. If a child is not given proper nutrition and care in her early years, her development and learning skills will be critically impaired.

Her future looks brighter when she’s properly taken care of – when she receives enough food and enough love during those crucial first 1000 days. Ensuring a good and safe early childhood will help her to avoid pitfalls such as a child marriage, premature pregnancy and a lack of education.

The future is built on these first 1000 days.

Plan is one of the largest and oldest children’s rights organisations in the world. We improve the life and protection of children, especially girls, in the weakest position in third world countries.

As a non-profit organisation, Plan Finland is not liable to taxation of the funds raised to finance its operations.
