Country Director


Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian organisation that advances children’s rights and equality for girls. We believe in the power and potential of every child. But this is often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination. And it’s girls who are most affected. Working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners, we strive for a just world, tackling the root causes of the challenges facing girls and all vulnerable children. We support children’s rights from birth until they reach adulthood. And we enable children to prepare for – and respond to – crises and adversity. We drive changes in practice and policy at local, national and global levels using our reach, experience and knowledge. We have been building powerful partnerships for children for over 80 years and are now active in more than 70 countries.

Plan International Vietnam’s country office is in Hanoi, and it’s programming portfolio extends to six provinces (Ha Giang, Lai Chau, Kontum, Quang Tri, Quang Binh) throughout Vietnam, working together with national, provincial, district and local level government partners, civil society organizations and development partners. At present the country office has an annual budget of approximately 9 million Euro, with a good balance of grants from bilateral, multilateral donors, corporate donors and individual and philanthropic donors.  Whilst the majority of the programming has been development focused, Plan International Vietnam has also been heavily involved in responding to local district level disasters, and the recent large scale humanitarian response to the severe flooding in Central Vietnam in October 2020.

The Country Director is accountable for the management and leadership of a team of approximately 130 staff with a Country Management Team of 6 members.
