For millions of girls, reaching puberty can be the first step towards a forced marriage. Every day, girls are taken out of school, isolated from their friends and forced into marriage and mother hood when they are still children themselves.

Not only is this unjust, it’s also a huge waste of potential with serious global consequences. Girls are being denied education right at a time when it has the power to transform their lives and the world around them. Making it through both primary and secondary education is critical to girls being able to help break the cycle of poverty.
Child marriage is a global problem: 10 million girls under the age of 18 marry each year, many as young as 8 year’s old. In developing countries, 1 in every 3 girls marries before they are 18.

Plan’s because I am a Girl campaign is tackling the barriers girls face to access quality education. I Support Plan and Because I am a Girl needs you!

Saturday dec.13th 2008 the night was dedicated to Women and the campaign ‘strong women’

Joytsna Maskay came to Holland from Nepal to tell her story to the public.

Various national and international experts, writers and supporters talked about their vision on the situation on girls and women in countries at war, or in post-conflict countries.

Journalist Ebru Umar interviewed Wendy Dubbeld on her experiences in Nepal and Joytsna Maskay on the situation at the moment.

In countries at war the chances to be a victim of rape as an instrument of war, are a lot higher than usual. Joytsna fights for the rights and protection these women and Wendy and Joytsna shared their story and goals with the listening public and press.

Last January, ICCO launched the campaign ‘Stronger Women’, which you were able to follow via my website.

By buying the charm, which is a symbol of the campaign, an amount of 25,000 euro has already been collected.

The charm is made by women in Nepal. The money will go to support projects for women.

I wish to thank everyone who has supported this campaign. The campaign will continue until 13 December. Please visit www.vrouwenstaansterker.nl for more information.

After an intense journey I am back from Nepal.

There were too many impressions to be able to elaborate on them all in this small window, but it is difficult to comprehend that in the same world in which I live, full of luxury, glamour and comfort, there is so much sadness, inequality and misery.

“We all live under the same sky, but we don’t all have the same horizon.”

Read my travel diary for all the stories under the caption ‘charity’, where you can also view some photos, and please all visit www.vrouwenstaansterker.nl to give your support to strong women who I met on my journey.

Love, Wendy

In January Wendy and ICCO shall be travelling to Nepal, one of the poorest countries in the world, which is trying to get back on its feet after a bloody civil war between the government and the Maoist. Violence has become part of their society and especially women are very vulnerable.

Many women are victim of domestic violence or end up working as prostitutes at a very young age.

With the campaign ICCO wants to give attention to the life conditions of women in (Post) conflict areas like Nepal, to support their position by giving them international support.

Strong brave women who fight for a good health system, security, education and against discrimination and sexual abuse.
Because more and more women stand up for their rights, traditions are broken with aggression as a result. ICCO wants to support the courageous and brave women and protect them.
