Walking for girls' rights
Since 2013, pupils and staff at Newcastle High School for Girls have organised a World Wide Walk through the city centre with local schools.
The pupils fundraise throughout the term by collecting sponsorship and organising fundraising events.
Together, they have already raised over £25,000 and will be walking again to support girls worldwide in 2017.
How your fundraising helps
In rural Uganda, girls often struggle to complete their education. When her family's finances took a turn for the worse, Irene was forced to drop out so that her siblings could continue school.
Luckily, Irene is now back in school thanks to a scholarship from Plan International.
We're helping girls like Irene to stay in school by providing scholarships and challenging attitudes.
