Plan International recruits 01 Child Protection & Gender in Emergency Specialist
Location: Bangui, BGF, CF
Company: Plan International
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.
Our Emergency Response Team comprises experienced experts that respond to disasters globally. Emergence roster members will be on standby for deployment and contracted through Plan when selected for an assignment.
This position is responsible for assessment, response analysis, design, and implementation and monitoring and evaluation of the gender based violence components of PLAN’s emergency response. It is also responsible for ensuring that gender considerations are taken into account both in the development of programmes and in the structure organizational. S/he will conduct gender assessments and analysis in all areas where Plan CAR is present and where Plan will want to start new activities.
