Plan International challenges Longford cyclists to use their pedal power for change and Cycle for Girls

The child’s rights organisation is calling on Longford sporting and cycling enthusiasts, both men and women, to sign up for their Vietnam Cycle for Girls 2017.

The trip of a lifetime from April 12-22nd allows participants to experience undiscovered and remote regions of south-east Asia while raising much needed funding for Plan International Ireland’s projects for girls.

Cyclists from a wide variety of backgrounds are encouraged to join the trip and immerse themselves in local culture while pedalling 250km through stunning rice paddy fields and remote mountain villages.

Participants will also have the unique experience of visiting Plan International girl’s rights projects along the way and see how their fundraising efforts are helping more girls get educated and reach their full potential. 

Plan International has been working in Vietnam since 1993.

The organisation’s work in northern Vietnam aims to provide bi-lingual schooling to ethnic minorities, especially girls, through improved learning spaces and better teacher training.
