TheirWorld are a global children’s charity committed to ending the global education crisis and unleashing the potential of the next generation.
People passionate about education being available for all children coming together for positive change & idea’s. A humbling day to say the least!
Chair Sarah Brown talked passionately about overcoming the many obstacles that prevent lasting and meaningful progress for girls and women.
"Our vision at Theirworld is to end the global education crisis and get every child into school – taking on the education and skill crisis and recognising that by 2030 half of young people won’t have the skills they need to have any meaningful employment. That is the barrier standing in the way of women and girls."
The event also featured a discussion with four female change-makers talking about how to unlock big change.
Unjoo Moon is a film producer and director of the upcoming movie I Am Woman, about the singer and activist Helen Reddy.
She said: "Telling stories about strong women is incredibly important to future generations of women. It shouldn’t be something special. I hope a generation of younger women will come out of the cinema singing the words that Helen Reddy wrote - I am strong, I am invincible, I Am Woman."
I am humbled and grateful to be asked to judge and be involved at such an amazing and inspirational event.
