Job description

The Organisation

 

Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian organisation that advances children’s rights and equality for girls.

 

We believe in the power and potential of every child. But this is often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination. And it’s girls who are most affected.

 

Working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners, we strive for a just world, tackling the root causes of the challenges facing girls and all vulnerable children.

 

We support children’s rights from birth until they reach adulthood. And we enable children to prepare for – and respond to – crises and adversity. We drive changes in practice and policy at local, national and global levels using our reach, experience and knowledge.

 

We have been building powerful partnerships for children for over 80 years, and are now active in more than 70 countries.

 

Girls Get Equal is about ensuring every girl and young woman has power over her own life and can shape the world around her.

 

Through our Girls Get Equal campaign, Plan International is supporting girls’ power, voice, participation and leadership in over 70 countries. 

 

The girls’ rights movement is changing the world but girls can’t achieve equality alone, they need allies. They need you.
