The project strengthened the capacity of a global working group of gender specialists – as well as three regional working groups of Plan national staff – to analyse child rights from a gender perspective and address the rights of boys and girls in Plan policy and programmes. The programme KIT developed for Plan International lay the foundation for Planting Equality, Plan’s global staff professional development platform, the Plan Academy.
