  • The Initiative mobilizes additional technical resources to support the leadership of ministries of education and other national actors to advance gender equality in education through sector planning, implementation and monitoring, and through the adoption of cross sectoral approaches.
  • An initial eight countries in sub-Saharan Africa, which include Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Mauritania, Mozambique, Niger, Nigeria and Sierra Leone, were later invited to join the initiative and further develop its initial design.

Role Purpose

  • Plan International strives to advance children’s right 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 its 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’s right from birth until they reach adulthood, and 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. For over 80 years we have been building partnership for children, and we are active in over 75 countries
  • 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.

  • Considering the protracted nature of the crisis, a Lake Chad Programme Strategy (2018 – 2023) was developed and endorsed, outlining Plan International’s bold ambition to transform the life of girls and their families in the Lake Chad Region.

The strategy has been recently revised to address new challenges and emerging issues.
