Giving Back: Our support of Plan International Australia
Supporter of Change | Because I am a Girl
As of the start of this year, Ondetto has become a Supporter of Change with Plan International Australia. We are committed to donating 1.5% of our profits to Plan.
Having travelled extensively in developing countries in Asia, South America, India and the Middle East, we have always had a wish to get involved with a non-profit organisation that helps children and young people in developing countries lift themselves out of poverty. Since we are parents of a beautiful young daughter and grateful for the opportunities we can provide to her, we have decided to support a children’s charity to help other children (particularly girls) also access better health & education.
As a Supporter of Change, we help fund projects in communities across Asia, Africa and the Pacific when and where it’s needed most such as an early learning centre in Ethiopia, or a water and sanitation program in Cambodia. We also help Plan kick-start permanent change in communities and empower children to overcome poverty, transform their communities and build a brighter future.
Because I am a Girl
Girls in developing countries are facing many more disadvantages than boys – from child marriage to lower levels of education, poor health and the dangers of child birth. Girls are also twice as likely to die from malnourishment.
Plan International Australia are currently running a fantastic campaign called Because I am a Girl, which focuses on the power of education to help lift girls out of poverty. Check out the video below to learn more.
