Project Officer- Aspiration to Stop Child Marriage Project

(Based at Dhaka and duration is up to February 2020)

All over the world girls are at risk because of their young age and their gender. They are at risk of being denied the opportunity to access a secondary education, to gain the skills and training they need to work and to exercise control over their sexual and reproductive health. They are at risk of being married before the age of 18. They are at risk of violence and harassment from men and boys in every space they occupy, including their home, their school, their refugee camp and their city.

Plan International believes in the power and potential of every child. This is often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination. Its girls who are most affected. Plan International’s Global Strategy aims to transform the lives of 100 million girls by implementing an integrated programme and influence approach. In view of that, the country programme is focusing towards a vision of empowering girls and young women, to be heard, to live without fear of violence and to achieve their rights.

Plan International Bangladesh’s holistic approach to youth employment and civic engagement puts youth at the centre of their own social and economic development by providing the information, skills, resources, opportunities, peer mentoring and support for youth to make their own choices, and transition into decent work and actively contribute to society. We believe that pre-employment competencies like life skills, gender relations and career counselling will not only enable youth to get a job but very importantly to lead their life as active citizens.
