Call For Proposals – Plan International Nigeria Youth Support Fund 2024 At Plan International

Plan International was founded over 75 years ago with a mission to promote and protect the rights of children. The organisation was set up by British journalist John Langdon-Davies and refugee worker Eric Muggeridge in 1937, with the original aim to provide food, accommodation and education to children whose lives had been disrupted by the Spanish Civil War. Langdon-Davies conceived the idea of a personal relationship between a child and a sponsor – a model that puts the child at the centre, and remains the core of what we do. Today, Plan International is a global organisation that is active in over 70 countries to advance children’s rights and equality for girls. Who We Are We work with communities around the world to end the cycle of poverty for children. We work with communities around the world to end the cycle of poverty for children.

Plan International Nigeria is an independent development and humanitarian non-profit organization that advances children’s rights and equality for girls. Plan International Nigeria recently refreshed and updated its Country Strategy for the period FY2024-FY2028. This was done following the launch of the Plan Global Strategy in 2022. The new Country Strategy “Girls are empowered to take action and drive change” reflects Plan Nigeria’s focus over the next five years and reflects key changes in the organizational objectives that align with its membership journey. Within this strategy Plan Nigeria aims to reach 20 million girls to LEARN, LEAD, DECIDE AND THRIVE while ensuring robust and strategic partnerships with youth groups.
In recognition of the importance of youth engagement in driving this change, we are excited to
announce an open call for proposals aimed at supporting youth-led organizations in Nigeria. This initiative seeks to empower young leaders especially girls and social entrepreneurs who are actively working on issues around women and girls.

Why Focus on Youth

Youth are a vital group that should be involved to bring about the change we want to see in our society for several reasons:

  • Innovation and Creativity. Youth often bring fresh perspectives and innovative ideas to complex challenges. Their creativity can lead to new and effective solutions to negative social norms around them.
  • Long-term Impact. Supporting youth initiatives creates a long-term impact as these individuals will continue to contribute to their communities throughout their lives.
  • Capacity Development. Investing in youth capacity building strengthens the future leadership in governance, programming and influencing efforts.
