Travel to Niger with Plan International USA CEO
Destination: Niger, January 23-28, 2012
Have you ever wished you could see the impact of your philanthropy firsthand? Or meet children and families who are changing their own futures with Plan’s support?
Leadership donors* to Plan International USA are invited to participate in an exclusive trip to West Africa led by our CEO, Tessie San Martin.
This very special trip will include visits to a variety of Plan projects in Niger, including IMAGINE – a successful program to expand educational opportunities for girls by constructing, furnishing, and training teachers for girl-friendly schools. You'll spend time with students, parents, and teachers whose lives have been transformed by IMAGINE, and see for yourself the extraordinary impact of your philanthropy.
Travelers will also visit local cultural sights, including Koure Reserve, home to the last herds of wild giraffes in West Africa.
With Ms. San Martin and our dedicated local Nigerien staff, you'll gain an intimate understanding of the opportunities and challenges facing families in Niger, and an insider's view of the life-changing progress made possible through your generosity.
Participants must pay their own travel expenses. Cost for this fully-escorted trip, including meals, accommodations, translators, program site visits, and tourist excursions is $2,369 per person. (Airfare not included.) For more details or to reserve your spot, please call Debi Gaskin at MTS Travel at 866-633-9320.
