Plan International Middle East, Eastern and Southern Africa
Promoting children’s rights and equality for girls in 15 countries across the region
The Middle East and Eastern and Southern Africa are facing a myriad of challenges including:
The effects of climate change
Complex emergencies resulting in conflict and displacement
A sharply declining civic space
A stagnation of economies
The COVID-19 pandemic.
These factors have limited access to education, basic services, jobs and have caused an increase in abuses of girls’ rights.
We provide support across the region and coordinate multi-country emergency responses. We influence regional bodies and establish regional partnerships to increase our impact.
Two of our priorities in the region are ending child marriage and supporting girls in displaced settings. We are leading work in these areas across the region through programmes and influencing to create positive changes in girls’ lives.
