North West girls to 'walk the world'

SCHOOLGIRLS in the North West are set to take part in one of the biggest UK charity walks ever attempted. Manchester, Liverpool and Cheshire schools have signed-up to the World Wide Walk, covering routes across the country on International Day of the Girl, 11 October 2013. The walk will raise money to help educate some of the world's poorest girls through global children's charity Plan UK's Because I am a Girl campaign.

"We'll be walking in solidarity with the 66 million school aged girls around the world who are missing out on an education. Poverty, discrimination and child marriage are among the many barriers keeping millions out of school. Plan UK is using its campaign to make a positive, lasting difference to the lives of four million of the world's poorest girls."
says Plan UK's chief executive Tanya Barron.

The Girls' School Association is partnering Plan UK for the day, with more than 30 schools already signed-up for synchronised walks across the country.

Joining schools across the country are Withington Girls' School in Manchester, Liverpool's Merchant Taylors' School for Girls, Alderley Edge School for Girls and The Queen's School, Chester.

Each girl will walk 10km, adding up to more than 40,000km, equivalent to the circumference of the globe.

Organisers hope to raise £250,000 through sponsorship (£50 each) to help girls access quality education, healthcare and prevent abuse such as early and forced marriage.

"We'll be walking side by side to raise awareness of and funds for some of the world's poorest out of school girls. To walk the equivalent distance of the circumference of the globe is a massive undertaking, but 1 we're excited to be part of. We're proud to be supporting Plan's vital work and hope world leaders hear our message; that girls everywhere have the right to a quality education."
says GSA President Hilary French.

Plan's 'Because I am a Girl' campaign aims to support 4,000,000 girls to get the education, choices and support they need to move themselves from a life of poverty, to a future with opportunity. To find out more visit:-
