Every girl has the right to an education, but over 60 million girls are missing from primary and secondary school education around the world today.

Orlaith and I will be travelling to Nepal next Spring 2017, to take on both a personal and physical challenge, as we trek to the summit of Poon Hill. Along with the tough descents and ascents culminating in a challenging 10,500 ft. climb to the Poon Hill summit, we will also travel to rural communities to see first hand how money raised will be used to deliver programmes and meet the people that are benefiting from the work of Plan International.

The duration of our trip will last 10 days and in that time we will journey through remote mountain villages and immerse ourselves in the local culture. We will trek through the village of Ghandruk, home to the Gurung people, and make our way through Rhododendron and Oak Forests and the village of Deurali. During our time, we will be visiting the construction sites of school dwellings that have had to be rebuilt after the devastating earthquakes that struck Nepal in April and May 2015.

Plan International, Orlaith, and myself are committed to driving the global movement ‘Because I am a Girl’ that transforms power relations so girls everywhere can learn, lead, decide and thrive.   We will return home to Ireland on May 7, 2017 with the hope and desire to share our experience and inspire others to support this worthy cause. Thank you.

All support is much appreciated
