UNIGLOBE Travel gives $25,000 to Plan International UK education program for child refugees

Leaders from UNIGLOBE Travel International were in London to present Plan International UK with a gift of $25,000 USD toward the organization’s Safe Schools for Refugees in Ethiopia project.

UNIGLOBE Travel agencies raised the funds during the company’s recent bi-annual global conference in Vienna. UNIGLOBE has been a supporter of Plan International for several years, with staff around the world trekking, cycling and climbing to raise funds for the charity. Since 2015, UNIGLOBE agencies have given approximately $150,000 USD to Plan International initiatives to help give every child every chance in life. 

Sam Davies, Head of Major Partnerships at Plan International UK, said: “This is a significant contribution to our Safe Schools for Refugees program. We are immensely grateful to UNIGLOBE members for their support, which will help to ensure that displaced children in Ethiopia and around the world are not forgotten.”

About Plan International UK 

Plan International UK is a children’s charity. We strive to advance children’s rights and equality for girls all over the world.

We recognise the power and potential of every single child. But this is often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination. And it’s girls who are most affected. Our Because I am a Girl campaign is a global movement that’s taking action to see a world that values girls, promotes their rights and ends injustice.

We encourage and help children take an active role in finding solutions to their problems and realising their rights and their full potential.
