Plan is hiring a Adolescent Sexual Reproductive Health Specialist,
Plan International is a rights-based development and humanitarian organization working for better lives for all children. We are independent of government and have no political or religious affiliation. Our purpose is to strive for a just world that advances children’s rights and equality for girls. We have been building powerful partnerships for children for more than 80 years, and are now active in more than 70 countries.
Our global strategy has a specific focus on girls, as they are often the most marginalized and most often left behind. We have committed ourselves to the ambitious target of reaching 100 million girls over 5 years, to ensure they can learn, lead, decide and thrive. This is our contribution to reaching the sustainable development goals, and in particular the goals on gender equality. Our organization is transforming itself to meet this enormous challenge everywhere we work. We need bold, forward-thinking and innovative individuals to lead our country operations, driving change and delivering results that will allow us to reach our target of 100 million girls.
In Mozambique we are working to eradicate early marriage and early pregnancy through projects that focus on adolescent girls in Inhambane Sofala and Nampula provinces. These projects are programmed along our three strategic pillars: Girl Education, Sexual Reproductive Health Rights, Youth Economic Empowerment and climate change. Our work is gender transformative and includes influencing work at national and sub-regional level.
Plan International is seeking a Adolescent Sexual Reproductive Health Specialist (GIS) for an anticipated USAID-funded Education program in Mozambique. This program will support the result areas of the USAID Mozambique Mission’s Human Capacity strategic goal under the USAID Advancing Girls’ Education (AGE) activity, with the purpose of increasing safety of girls in school through mobilizing communities and to expand girls’ access to quality education and improve learning outcomes for girls in upper primary and secondary grades.
The Adolescent Sexual Reproductive Health Specialist (ASRHS) will provide technical assistance around ASRH and develop comprehensive strategies for key stakeholders to produce highly effective programs to improve social behavior change around sexual reproductive health. The position is contingent upon award of the project by the donor.
