Plan International Mexico
Plan International began operations in Mexico in 2020.
We currently work in the municipality of Tapachula in the southern state of Chiapas. Our team works to address the direct needs of migrants, refugees and asylum seekers.
Mexico is well known for receiving hundreds of thousands of migrants each year who move from all over Latin America looking to reach the United States. In 2021, 31,607 child asylum seekers arrived in Mexico and between January and September 2021, 9,585 unaccompanied children entered the country.
Girl and women migrants face increased risks of trafficking, sexual exploitation and forced labour. We ensure that all migrant children can exercise their rights to shelter, education, health, basic services and protection.
