Freida Pinto: Plan International's Newest Global Brand Ambassador!

Freida Pinto poses with some children during a recent trip to Sierra Leone as part of her new position as Global Brand Ambassador of Plan International’s Because I am a Girl campaign.

“Educate and empower a girl and she will help build a stronger community,” the 27-year-old actress wrote in her Plan blog. “Ask them what their dreams are and they will…tell you that they want to be accountants, doctors, journalists, politicians — but only after they say that they dream of a place that is rid of gender inequality.”

“I was asked by a journalist in Sierra Leone, what hope can I give these girls to which I said: “To be very honest, these girls have given me hope,” Freida added.
