UNIGLOBE Travel gives $25,000 to Plan International UK education program for child refugees
Leaders from UNIGLOBE Travel International were in London to present Plan International UK with a gift of $25,000 USD toward the organization’s Safe Schools for Refugees in Ethiopia project.
UNIGLOBE Travel agencies raised the funds during the company’s recent bi-annual global conference in Vienna. UNIGLOBE has been a supporter of Plan International for several years, with staff around the world trekking, cycling and climbing to raise funds for the charity. Since 2015, UNIGLOBE agencies have given approximately $150,000 USD to Plan International initiatives to help give every child every chance in life.
Sam Davies, Head of Major Partnerships at Plan International UK, said: “This is a significant contribution to our Safe Schools for Refugees program. We are immensely grateful to UNIGLOBE members for their support, which will help to ensure that displaced children in Ethiopia and around the world are not forgotten.”
