Plan International are an amazing charity who promote and protect children’s rights, and equality for girls. In April I will join them on a trekking expedition in Nepal, to raise awareness of their work, and raise funds for the Because I Am a Girl Campaign.
What does Plan International do?
Plan International was founded almost 80 years ago with a mission to promote and protect the rights of children and promote equality for girls. Today, Plan International is a global organisation that works in 51 low-income countries to promote child rights and lift millions of children out of poverty. The organisation’s programmes cover 8 key impact areas: education; water and sanitation; sexual and reproductive health; child participation; early childhood care and development; child protection; economic security and disaster risk management.
What is the Because I Am a Girl campaign?
Because I am a Girl is Plan International’s global initiative to transform power relations so that girls everywhere learn, lead, decide and thrive. The focus of the campaign is on girls, because a girl in the developing world faces overwhelming odds from the day she’s born. To do this, Plan identify the key barriers to girls’ empowerment – child marriage, forced labour, sexual violence, early pregnancy and more – and they break them.
How is Kristina involved?
I have supported Plan International for the last 4 years, and have always been impressed with their work. To help raise awareness of the impact they have on children and communities all over the world, and girls in particular, I will be travelling to Nepal in April 2017, to complete a challenging 4 day hike to the Poon Hill summit at 3,210m in the Himalayan region. I will also visit some of the programmes that Plan International are running in Nepal. I hope to raise 5,000 Euro for this wonderful charity.
