Plan International in Timor-Leste


Call for expression of interest:


Founded over 75 years ago, Plan is one of largest and oldest child development organizations in the world.  Our work in Timor-Leste includes Early Child Care and Development, Water Sanitation and Hygiene, Youth Empowerment, Child Protection, Disaster Risk Management, Inclusive Education and Basic Education.  Plan’s vision is of a world in which all children realize their full potential in societies that respect people’s rights and dignity. Plan has no political or religious aims or affiliations.


Plan International has worked in partnership with UNICEF and MoE/MSS to increase the resilience of and reduce the risk of primary school children living in the district of Aileu by minimizing the impact of disasters on their right to a quality education in the MoE’s framework of CFS “Eskola Foun”.  Through the “Integration of disaster risk reduction into child friendly schools” program, Plan and UNICEF have targeted 15 schools in the district of Aileu through capacity building of their Disaster Management Committees.  This project affects 3750 students, 150 teachers and 95 PTA members.  The pilot program will run from 1st of March 2014 until the 30th of November 2014.

Plan now requires an external consultant to produce evidence on the results and lessons learned from the pilot project available for use by the Ministry of Education, Plan International and UNICEF.

The result of this assessment will be used for the improvement of MoE CFS package.

The expected outcomes of the project include the following:

Outcome 1: Capacity of 60 primary school children, 45 teachers, 15 PTA members, 30 community leaders as School Disaster Management Committee members at school level and 10 education officials at district and sub – district level will be developed to anticipate, plan and react appropriately to disasters.

Outcome 2:  Evidence and the results and lessons learned from the pilot project documented and available for use by the MoE for integration of DRR into its CFS package.
