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 this is often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination. And it’s girls who are most affected.
Working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners, we strive for a just world, tackling the root causes of the challenges facing girls and all vulnerable children.
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. We have been building powerful partnerships for children for over 80 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, Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights, and Youth Economic Empowerment. Our work is gender transformative and includes influencing work at national and sub-regional level.
The MHM coordinator will be responsible for setting up the MHM project and providing training to relevant project staff (Plan and partner) about Menstrual Hygiene and Management and to VSLA groups within communities, supporting the establishment of subsequent VSLA group’s Tailor-made and Income Generating activities and providing ongoing monitoring and support to groups after establishment to ensure they are successful and transparent in their business. The MHM Coordinator will lead on project data collection, collation and analysis, as well as carrying out project deliverables and building good relationships with partners in the field. Primary duties will involve field level operations with frequent visits to project communities in rural areas to meet with project beneficiaries, working closely with community leaders and partners in the field.

That means we have particular responsibilities to children that we come into contact with.
Plan International believes that in a world where children face so many threats of harm, it is our duty to ensure that we, as an organisation, do everything we can to keep children safe. We must not contribute in any way to harming or placing children at risk.
