Plan International Nigeria

Plan International has been operating in Nigeria since 2014 to promote children’s rights and equality for girls. 

Over the years there has been a struggle in Nigeria to provide the country’s young and vast population with a quality education. The situation has been exacerbated by violence from insurgents in the North East of the country since 2009. As a result, thousands of people have died and millions have fled their homes either within Nigeria or to neighbouring countries.

The violence has also caused acute food shortages across the entire Lake Chad region.

Our key areas of work include:

  • Ensuring children continue their education in safety 
  • Reducing maternal and child mortality among marginalised and vulnerable women and girls
  • Nutritional support for mothers and young children 
  • Protecting children from violence  
  • Empowering young people to stand up for their rights and call for accountability from leaders. 

Global Girls’ Summit 2022

Equal Power Now

To mark International Day of the Girl 2022, Nigeria will host the fifth annual Global Girls’ Summit, a multicultural, intergenerational event where girls interact, share challenges and call for action towards gender equality.

This year, they will be calling for powerholders to uphold their right to political participation when they meet in Abuja on 12 and 13 October.
