The Organisation

 

Plan International is independent child rights and humanitarian organization committed to ensuring children live a life free of poverty, violence and injustice. We actively unite children, communities, and other people who share our mission to make positive lasting changes in children’s and young people’s lives. We support children in gaining the skills, knowledge and confidence they need to claim their rights to a fulfilling life, today and in the future. We place a specific focus on girls and women, who are most often left behind. We have been building powerful partnerships for children for more than 80 years, and are now active in more than 70 countries. Plan International Jordan was established in 2016 and has programmes throughout the country on education, youth empowerment, and protection (CP, GBV, SRHR) in (Amman, Karak, Jarash, and Azraq camp). Plan’s Global Gender Equality and Inclusion policy states that the core objectives of Plan International’s work are to achieve gender equality, promoting gender justice, realising girls’ rights and fostering an inclusive society. This commitment is reflected in our five-year country strategy, our Values and Behaviours Framework, and our Theory of Change.

confront and challenge discrimination and human rights violations based on gender. This includes gender-based violence and other forms of exclusion.

challenge stereotypes and unequal power relations between women, men, boys, and girls to promote gender equality, girls’ rights, and inclusion.

foster an organisational culture that embraces and exemplifies our commitment to gender equality, girls’ rights and inclusion, while supporting staff to adopt good practices, positive attitudes and the principles of gender equality and inclusion.
