Story

Dear Family & Friends,

Thanks for taking the time to
learn about my first expedition with Her Planet Earth to support UN Women UK.

I will trek 80km for eight days through Iceland's dramatic landscapes. I will cross lava fields, rivers, waterfalls, glaciers and spouting geysers. I will also camp and sleep in tents (never done before!). It will be the opportunity to leave my comfort zone and push my limits in an effort to rally support for a cause.

My expedition is entirely self-funded, which means that 100% of the funds raised here will go to UN Women UK. We are Leaving on the 20th August 2019. 

My goal is to increase awareness of environmental degradation and raise funds for programmes that empower and educate underprivileged women affected by climate change in rural areas of Asia (Bangladesh, Nepal and Vietnam).

Examples of how your donations could help:

- USD50 could provide a series of leadership and self-esteem
workshops for women and girls to give them the skills and confidence to respond
to these climate risks and challenges.

- USD500 could help set up a livelihood project that empowers
women business leaders in agriculture to manage their business in at-risk
areas.

- USD1,000 could allow UN Women UK to work with Governments
to develop disaster recovery strategies and national disaster management
planning.

Thank you for your interest,
for staying with me until these last words and for donating!

And please wish me luck ;-)
