About The Initiative

Bik Bok has supported Plan International since 2011, primarily through their campaign “Because I am a Girl” - a global initiative to end gender inequality, promote girls’ rights and lift millions of girls – and everyone around them – out of poverty.

In 2014 we launched our own initiative called Girls Right to Education. The initiative aims to raise girls and focus on addressing the barriers that prevents them from completing their education. Supporting girls education is one of the single best investments we can make to help end poverty.

Our first project was launched fall 2014 in central Vietnam were we committed to fund a 3 year long school project together with Plan. Together with our customers we raised over 3 million NOK (€300 000) and improved the lives for almost 1200 children that were direct beneficiaries of our project. See the result from our first project here.

In July 2018 we committed to fund our second project with Plan – a 3 year project in northern Bangladesh. Read more about our ongoing project here.
