because they are SMART girls

It blows my mind that just a month ago I was in Rwanda with Plan Canada and Smart Water and Olympian Jen Heil.  A month and 5 weddings ago.  But I digress…

I say it blows my mind, not just because time seems to travel so quickly, but because it was such a jolt in my life.  An injection of beauty, love, power, friendship and promise.

I said previously that I would share exactly what I was doing there.  It involves, three contest winners and some visions to change the world. I have decided to let this video, created by the amazing Darcy Turenne, do the explaining.

Here are a handful of photos that I took to accompany this amazing initiative.

The three winners! Kama, Caroline + Christy:

Dancers greeted us in every village we visited.

This is a girl that Smart Water sponsors through Plan.  What an experience to visit her home and meet her family.

It was only a matter of time before we were invited to participate directly in the festivities!

Jen Heil is an Ambassador of Plan and the Because I am a Girl campaign.  She is also incredibly inspiring.
