Job Description/Requirements

Programme Manager Sudan (Kenya base)

Date: 21 Jun 2024

Location: Nairobi, Kenya

Company: Plan International

The Organisation

Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian organisation that advances children’s rights and equality for girls. We believe in the power and potential of every child but know this is often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination. And it is girls who are most affected.

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 support children’s rights from birth until they reach adulthood and we 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 85 years, we have rallied other determined optimists to transform the lives of all children in more than 80 countries.

We won’t stop until we are all equal.

The Opportunity

The conflict left 25 million people in need of humanitarian assistance; 14 million of these are children. The conflict has resulted in an increased risk of civilians’ protection, especially for children, girls and women. It is crucial to acknowledge that children are subjected to various types of rights violations and violence, which fall under the six grave violations category as there have been allegations of over 3,150 severe child rights violations and 6.7 million estimated to be at risk of gender-based violence, including: killing, maiming of children and torture by direct or indirect actions; recruitment and use of children by the armed groups in the different conflict zones. According to some estimates over 70 % of all Health facilities across Sudan are no longer functional. Schools the countries have been occupied by IDPs. Plan International like other humanitarian actors is particularly concerned about the prolonged closure of the schools thereby denying more than 19 million children access to education, a basic right for children, 7 million of whom were already out of school even before the conflict started.

This position will support the coordination and implementation of the Sudan crisis multi-country Response Programme Strategy in close collaboration with the 7 concerned Plan International country offices (COs), the Regional Office in Middle East, East and Southern Africa (MEESA), and various National Organizations (NOs) within the Federation of Plan International.
