A great cause: Because I am a girl…

In case you haven’t heard of it, Plan.ie is an international charity that dedicates it time and money to helping children around the world, promoting child rights to end child poverty. On their website, Plan.ie explains:

For almost 80 years we’ve been taking action and standing up for every child’s right to fulfil their potential. On a daily basis, our energy is devoted to making a difference for children living in poverty.”

Because I am a Girl is just one strand of this charity’s reach: a global equality movement which transforms communities by empowering girls.

I was delighted to be invited to write a blog post for Because I am a Girl, as my various travels – including my recent trip to Cambodia – have highlighted that this is an important area that still requires a lot of work.

You can learn more about the project, what you can do to help, and also read my blog post here.
