Be bold for brave girls

Fundraise at your school

Be Bold for Brave Girls is our inspiring new social action programme. It’s linked to the new Relationships and Sex Education curriculum and will inspire your pupils to boldly go where they’ve never been before, by real girls who are being brave every day.

Through the support of schools like yours, we’ve been campaigning for equal rights and have made some great progress. But there’s so much more we need to do. Encourage your pupils to find their own bravery, as they raise money to help girls around the world.

Register now on the National School Partnership’s website for your fundraising pack. Be quick, the first 50 schools to register will also receive a free pack of printed fundraising materials!

Bucket list bold

Everyone has something that they’d like to achieve one day. Your pupils could:

  • Overcome a fear, like a fear of heights, the dark or public speaking.
  • Try something new, like learning a new language or instrument, abseiling or cold-water swimming.

Think about something you could ask for sponsorship for – the sky really is the limit with this one! By tackling your fears and raising funds for Plan International UK, you’ll help other girls live and learn without fear.

Go the distance bold

Go the distance for brave girls by testing your stamina and pushing your limits. Whether it’s dancing for five hours or running five miles, make sure you get sponsored for your BRAVE-athon. Your pupils could:

  • Do a sponsored walk, run or cycle. Choose a distance for yourself or work as a class or school to clock up the miles – and the sponsorship – together.
  • Test your willpower to give up something you love, like chocolate, crisps, fizzy drinks, social media or your mobile phone.

In the spotlight bold

Be brave by putting yourself in the spotlight and raising funds through sponsorship, ticket sales, or donations. There are lots of ways for you to make your event a great success. Your pupils could:

  • Set up an open mic or busking spot in your school.
  • Put on a show for your school or local community.
  • Turn your existing end-of-term concert or play into a Be Bold for Brave Girls fundraiser.

Meet our school supporters

The GSA and GDST have been supporting our Because I am a Girl campaign for over five years. Together, they've raised over £200,000 for our girls' rights projects around the world.

We're incredibly grateful for the ongoing support of students, teachers and parents who are helping to make a real difference for girls.

We're making progress but there's still so much more to do. Join us and make a difference for girls.
