VACANCY ANNOUNCEMENT
EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES IN PLAN INTERNATIONAL, RWANDA
Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian not for profit organization that advances children’s right
s 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 its 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 75 years, and are now active in more than 70 countries.
Plan International has been working in Rwanda since 2007 with a major focus on four country programs:  Right to Access Quality and Inclusive Education, Right to Early Childhood Care and Development through United Communities, Right to Youth Economic Security through Active Citizenship and Right to Protection. Plan currently operates in Gatsibo, Kayonza, Rwamagana, Bugesera and Nyaruguru. Plan International Rwanda has entered into partnership with UNHCR and other partners to implement Sexual & Gender Based Violence Responses and Child protection in all Refugees Camps across the country.
"Plan International, Rwanda is deeply committed to realizing children’s rights as enshrined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and National Integrated Child Rights Policy– including their rights to protection and freedom from abuse and exploitation. We therefore have an unequivocal child protection policy and zero tolerance to any form of child abuse and exploitation. All who work for us, represent us and visit with us, are expected to abide by our child protection policy and related procedures during their engagement with us.
