Plan International Grants Officer Jobs in Nigeria

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

We support children’s rights from birth until they reach adulthood, and enable children to prepare for – and respond to – crises and adversity.

We believe in the power and potential of every child, but know this is often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination.

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

We have been building powerful partnerships for children for over 80 years and are now active in more than 70 countries, driving changes in practice and policy at local, national and global levels using our reach, experience and knowledge. Plan International is registered in Nigeria with the Corporate Affairs Commission.
