Plan International is an independent child rights and humanitarian organisation committed to children living 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 to gain 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 75 years, and are now active in more than 70 countries.
In Mozambique we are working to eradicate early marriage and early pregnancy through projects that focus on adolescent girls in Inhambane and Nampula. These projects are programmed along our three strategic pillars: Girl Education, SRHR, and YEE. Our work is gender transformative and includes influencing work at national and sub-regional level.
Plan International Mozambique is involved in humanitarian efforts in the immediate aftermath of the Idai cyclone. Interventions focus on NFI distributions, Education and WASH, livelihood child protection and women and girls’ protection and empowerment.
