To celebrate International Women’s Day, CBRE is proud to announce an extension to its partnership with children’s charity, Plan International, to bring the charity’s ‘Safer Cities’ programme to Nairobi in Kenya.
About Safer Cities Every year, over 20 million girls move to cities to find jobs and escape the abuse and early marriage often experienced in rural communities. But far from finding opportunity, for thousands of girls city life can mean sexual harassment, violence or worse.
