    Plan International USA - Working in 50 developing countries across Africa, Asia and the Americas, Plan’s stated Global Strategic Goal (2011-15) is to reach as many children as possible, particularly those who are excluded or marginalised, with high-quality programmes that deliver long-lasting benefits. Plan aims to achieve this goal by working in partnership with others and through high performing teams whose behaviours reflect the corporate values. Plan has a global income of around $800m.

    Plan USA took ownership of the Centre for Development and Population Activities (CEDPA) in November 2012. As part of this it also acquired an operating entity in Nigeria (CEDPA Nigeria). This entity is now being transitioned to Plan International Inc., which will lead to the establishment of Plan International Nigeria.

The country director will also be part of Plan’s West and Central Africa’s Regional Management team, consisting of the CDs from the other 12 countries in which Plan operates in, along with the Regional Director and his two Deputies.
