Description

JOB DESCRIPTION

L’ Organisation

Plan International is an independent humanitarian and development organization that advances children’s rights and gender equality or further equal rights for girls. We believe in the power and potential of every child but we know that this is often swept aside by poverty, violence, exclusion, social norms and discrimination. And it is girls who are most affected.

Working together with children, young people, supporters and partners, we seek a fairer and more sustainable world that addresses the root causes of the challenges that vulnerable girls and children may face.

We support girls and, more broadly, all children from birth to adulthood to develop their autonomy and give them the ability to decide for their lives in development and/or emergency situations. We drive changes in practice and policy at local, national and global levels through our reach, experience and knowledge of needs, realities and inequalities.

For more than 85 years, we have mobilized other determined optimists to transform the lives of all children in more than 80 countries. Together we won’t stop.

Until equality!
