Florence Nightingale In Support of the Girl Child Education Fund (GCEF)
Date Posted: 20/Nov/2011

Sending girls to school - Securing healthy futures

The Girl Child Education Fund (GCEF), a signature initiative of Florence Nightingale International Foundation (FNIF), supports the primary and secondary schooling of girls under the age of 18 in developing countries, whose nurse parent or parents have died. Sadly, this number continues to rise. Your donation to the Girl Child Education Fund will go towards school fees, uniforms, shoes and books and ensure the primary and secondary education of girls who would otherwise not be able to go to school.

Through the GCEF the orphaned daughters of nurses in developing countries are getting back to school. We work in partnership with The International Council of Nurses’ member National Nurses Associations, to ensure that the money goes directly to education costs. Every girl in our program is paired with a nurse volunteer to monitor her progress at school and at home.

This beautiful fully jointed teddy bear has been hand made with care by the Great British Teddy Bear Company. Florence is 34cm tall and wears a miniature of the blue and white dress once worn by ‘Nightingale nurses’, and carries a replica of her famous lamp. Her khaki canvas bag holds three little bandages so that she can nurse any injured toys she meets as she travels the globe raising valuable funds for the Girl Child Education Fund (GCEF).

The ICN.FNIF Florence Nightingale Teddy Bear is being sold in support of the GCEF, which provides for the primary and secondary schooling of the orphaned daughters of nurses in developing countries, paying for school fees, uniforms, shoes and books. We will deliver your Florence Nightingale Bear anywhere in the world within 5 days.

The Florence Nightingale Teddy Bear conforms to all International Toy Safety regulations and is suitable for all aspiring nurses 3 years and above.
