February 20, 2017 Minister Ploumen (foreign trade and development cooperation) was inundated by responses to her call for a fundraising initiative for family planning programmes. She received thousands of messages from over 150 countries in 23 languages through both social and traditional media. The vast majority of responses were positive, with many indicating a desire to donate to a fund. To meet this demand, the Dutch ministry of foreign affairs, in cooperation with Dutch NGO Rutgers, is launching 'SHE DECIDES - Global Fundraising Initiative’. Minister Ploumen: "The response to my call has been beyond expectation, with many positive reactions from around the world. It is heart-warming and inspiring that so many people from so many countries are standing up for the rights of women and girls."
