Ending 30th May 2017
We are taking on Plan International Ireland’s Cycle Vietnam to raise funds for the Because I am a Girl Campaign, to help transform communities in low-income countries by empowering girls.
We want a future where all girls are educated and empowered to change the world! When you educate and empower girls, the whole world benefits.
Girls who are healthy, educated and earning, lift themselves and their communities out of poverty. A girl in the developing world faces overwhelming odds from the day she’s born. Every day girls are denied their basic human rights. They often can’t go to school, earn a living and are at greater risk of violence in their communities. Plan International are working to reverse those odds with their work and in particular their Because I am a Girl campaign.
We are taking on the Cycle for Girls Vietnam challenge to raise much needed funds to support this initiative! We will be travelling to Vietnam in April 2017 to take part in a Cycle trip of 250km over the course of 5 days. The journey will take us through the North-Western region of Vietnam, where we will traverse the Ha Giang province by bike, working our way through remote mountain villages and immersing ourselves in the local H’mong culture! We will visit Plan International education and girls’ rights projects along the way, to see first hand how our fundraising efforts are helping more girls get educated and reach their full potential.
This is going to be an educational, fascinating and challenging physical experience (especially for Emma!) but we are motivated and ready! We would love if you could support us so we can support them!
We are covering our own costs for the trip (€3000). Anything that you can contribute, no matter how small, would be greatly appreciated and all donations received will go directly to this fantastic charity.
Thanks! Emma & Stéphane
