Hike for Her – on or before the 24 January 2021

Join Plan International Ireland on our first ever virtual challenge: Hike for Her!

Hike for Her is a virtual 10KM hike or walk. Do your hike however you like – around the house, in the garden or in your local area (please be mindful of public health guidelines).

We are asking supporters to do their walk on or around International Day of Education, which takes place on Sunday 24 January.

All children, no matter where they live, have the right to a quality education. Yet, millions of children across West Africa are out of school. In Nigeria, for instance, there 10 million out of school children, 60% of whom are girls. COVID-19 and an ongoing food crisis will only make the situation worse. In some cases parents have to make the heart-breaking choice of feeding their child or sending them to school.
