  • Plan International was founded over 75 years ago with a mission to promote and protect the rights of children.

    Consultancy - Baseline Studies in Urban WASH 3 States of Imo, Niger abd Sokoto



    RTI International in collaboration with Plan International and other partners is implementing a 4-year USAID funded Effective Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (E-WASH) program.

This is part of the United States Government’s (USG) efforts working with the Federal Government to address the heart of the challenges faced by the urban water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) services. The overall goal is improvement of urban water and sanitation service delivery.

    Plan International is seeking to identify 6 dynamic and technically strong Consultants to support the undertaking of baseline studies to firstly establish the current performance levels of CSOs in Urban WASH, identify the gaps and develop action plans and service plans for water service delivery in the urban areas of Imo, Niger and Sokoto States.
