The Invisible Child Discussion in Helsinki on December 4th

Earlier this fall Oxfam and Moomin Characters launched The Invisible Child campaign to help empower girls and women around the world.

On December 4th the British Ambassador Sarah Price, Oxfam Private Sector Partnership Manager Edward Gillespie and Sophia Jansson from Oy Moomin Characters Ltd come together to discuss the partnership.

The discussion will take place in the heart of Helsinki at Akateeminen and is moderated by Baba Lybeck.

Join us for an interesting evening with an important topic. Children are also more than welcome and they will have their own programme!

Check out the Facebook Event and join us!

You too can help

The fundraising is to support Oxfam’s work fighting extreme poverty and suffering around the world. Since the majority of people living in poverty are women, the rights of women and girls are at the heart of the charity’s work. The moderator Baba Lybeck will donate her compensation from the event to support Oxfam.

Baba Lybeck said: ”I wanted to join the campaign because the invisible children need our help. Change starts at home. With the education of girls, we will help the entire society to develop. This is why Oxfam’s work is so important – let’s make all the invisible Ninny’s visible again!”

Special edition of Tove Jansson’s novel was released in October in English and now also in Finnish and Swedish by WSOY and Förlaget. For each purchase, at least 4 euros will be donated to Oxfam to support women and girls around the world.

 

 

The book in Finnish can be bought from Adlibris or Suomalainen.
