On International Day of the Girl – Saturday, October 11th – Plan Ireland held its inaugural Because I am a Girl Gala Ball in the Double Tree Hotel.
The night attracted the great and the good for a fun-filled, celebrity-drenched night out, it was a great night and all proceeds raised on the night supporting Plan Ireland’s work with girls in the developing world.
For 76 years Plan has been standing up for children everywhere. Our focus through our Because I am a Girl Campaign is girls, because a girl in the developing world faces overwhelming odds from the day she’s born … just because she is a girl. Plan wants to reverse these odds. We are intent on freeing girls from harm, getting them into school, and protecting them from being forced into marriage, being sold and trafficked and being cut. Every girl has a right to survive and fulfill her potential, and now, you can play your part.
