Every year the last Sunday in October, there is a big national event in Norway, a fundraising campaign. This year the campaign supported Plan Norway, and the purpose was “Girls, not brides”. Zonta Norway and local clubs participated in the campaign by donating and walking from door to door collecting money. Every door was visited all over the country, thousands of volunteers in action. In fact, all Norwegians participated in the charity campaign for the fight against child marriage, including government, the Prime minister, school students and business. Even the Norwegian King, Harald V, participated!
And the result: 243 mill. Nkr/ 28 mill. Dollar. Enough money to reach out to 3 million girls.
