Role Purpose

  • Plan International strives to advance children‚Äôs rights and equality for girls all over the world. We recognise the power and potential of every single child. But this is often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion, and discrimination. And it’s girls who are most affected. As an independent development and humanitarian organisation, we work alongside children, young people, our supporters and partners to tackle the root causes of the challenges facing girls and all vulnerable children. We support children‚Äôs rights from birth until they reach adulthood, and enable children to prepare for and respond to crises and adversity.

  • Now in its eleventh year, the protracted crisis in the Lake Chad Basin Region remains one of the most severe humanitarian emergencies in the world, affecting the North-East of Nigeria, the Far North Region of Cameroon, the Lake Region of Chad and the Diffa Region in Niger.¬† More than 17 million people are living in the affected areas across the four countries. In February 2020, 9.4 million people were reported as needing humanitarian assistance to survive, more than 6 million of them are children. These figures will also have worsened during 2020, given the impact of COVID-19 and the resulting increased food insecurity in the region. The crisis has unfolded in a region beset by chronic fragility, where poverty, underdevelopment, gender inequality, unemployment and a lack of prospects for young people fuel extremism and are compounded by environmental degradation and the impacts of climate change.
  • In the last four years, the LCP addressed the needs of girls, boys and their communities through an integrated sectorial approach addressing protection, education and livelihoods. As a result, Plan International has gained the recognition of its peers, UN agencies and government bodies at both local and national levels as one of the lead agencies in the field of child protection and education
  • Considering the protracted nature of the crisis, a Lake Chad Programme Strategy (2018 – 2023) was developed and endorsed, outlining Plan International‚Äôs bold ambition to transform the lives of girls and their families in the Lake Chad Region.

This approach recognizes the importance of meeting immediate humanitarian needs while tackling the developmental deficit of the region which is both a contributor to and an outcome of the crisis. The strategy has been recently revised to address new challenges and emerging issues.
