Location: Bamenda/Kumba, NW, CM
Company: Plan International
Plan International is an independent non-profit development and humanitarian organization that advances children’s rights and equality for girls.
We believe in the power and potential of every child. However, these are often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination. In addition, it is 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. Moreover, 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 75 years, and are now active in more than 70 countries.
The South-West and North-West Regions have experienced instability since October 2016, which has intensified since October 2017. Increased tensions have led to destruction of property including schools, as well as increasing levels of violence affecting the population, from both the government forces and the non-state armed groups. In October 2018 the UN Cluster system was activated for the response. Plan International Cameroon have been responding to the Crisis with the main response office based in Bamenda, in the North West region. The response also has a presence in Kumba and Mamfe - Meme and Manyu divisions in the SW, and with the rapid increase of numbers of affected people, Plan International has made a strategic decision to scale up the response to meet the needs of the affected populations.
As of October 2018, the Crisis has created an estimated 530,000 internally displaced persons, and 35,000 refugees into Nigeria. With the scale up of the Plan International response in Cameroon, we are looking for a CPiE Officer to focus on our Psycho-Social Support (PSS) programming to those affected by the Crisis.
The NW SW Crisis Response focuses on Child Protection in Emergencies with cross-cutting WASH & NFI programming.
