‘Women go Wild’ Survival Challenge with Plan International
One of Ireland’s toughest charity challenges will see you survive 24 hours in remote mountain uplands.
The event kicks off on Saturday morning with intensive survival training session. Teams will learn about navigation, shelter building, food and much, much more. Then the real challenge begins as you depart on your mission to find high camp. When you reach high camp your priority will be to build your shelter, get some food into you and bed down for the night under the stars. The next day will dawn early as you navigate out to your rendezvous point.
This challenge will take place on May 12th- 13th and there will also be one running 23rd-24th June.
To officially secure your place on the trip, there is a registration fee of €50. You can pay this online at https://www.plan.ie/deposit-for-survival-challenge/ or by phone at 01 568 5835. Once you have signed up, you can start your fundraising, the target is €300. This is a very achievable target, and we will be on hand to help you reach it.
Here at Plan International Ireland, we have a vision – happy, healthy and educated girls.
By joining us on this extraordinary challenge, you are supporting this vision.
The money raised will go to our ‘Because I am a Girl’ campaign and will help us to continue our work breaking down the barriers to gender equality such as child marriage, FGM, child labour and lack of access to education.
