Terms of Reference engagement of partners At Plan International

Plan International Nigeria is seeking to engage one Local Non-Governmental Organizations to implement a Nutrition project: Enhancing Infant and Young Children’s Nutrition in Nigeria through Home Fortification.

Plan International strives for a just world that advances children’s rights and equality for girls. Through Plan International Nigeria’s (PIN) Country Strategy (FY2020-24), we are working to ensure that 10 million girls can learn, lead, decide and thrive. This bold ambition is helping to transform power relations in favour of girls in Nigeria. We adopt rights-based approaches—working with children and young people, communities, and institutions to contribute toward an environment where all women and children, particularly girls, can realise their rights. We place a specific focus on the needs and rights of children, adolescent girls and young women and we strive to adopt gender transformative, intersectional and inclusive approaches, working with girls and women, boys and men, to promote positive change in gender norms and power relations. We bring proven expertise in programme design, management, monitoring and evaluation, capacity building and training, logistics and supply chain management and institutional development globally including in Nigeria.

Plan International Nigeria is present in 18 states and has six permanent field offices (Abuja, Sokoto, Bauchi, Yobe, Niger, Adamawa and Borno). In addition to flagship nutrition-focused programming, across Nigeria, Plan is improving governance, building economic security and livelihoods, improving youth influencing, supporting inclusive education and strengthening health systems. Plan is represented in two global clusters by the Food Assistance & Nutrition Unit: The Global Nutrition Cluster and the Global Food Security Cluster, and Plan is a member of the Nutrition Cluster Working Group in Nigeria.

We take a holistic approach to health and nutrition, recognizing that different approaches need to be taken for the multiple contexts and environments in which we work, recognizing the importance of a life-course approach with tailored interventions to support sexual and reproductive health, through maternal health, childbirth, infancy, early childhood development and into adolescence.

Plan International has been a pioneer in child safeguarding and has invested resources in its mainstreaming across the organization through development of minimum standards, procedures and tools, all using an intersectional lens.

As a child’s right organization, we are experienced in child health programming ensuring that vulnerable and excluded children in development and humanitarian settings get the care, support and services needed to survive, grow up healthy and develop to their full potential. We recognize that in a child’s early years – especially the first 1,000 days when a child’s brain development is at its most rapid – foundations are laid that are critical for future wellbeing and resilience, mental and physical health, intellectual progress and social interaction. As such, this project will provide Plan with the opportunity to ensure that women and children receive the service and support needed to set the foundations for them to enjoy lifelong good health in Abuja.
