Operation CS-5

Terms and conditions

  1. The competition is open to all staff member regardless of whether you’re permanent, on a contract, a volunteer, or a board member. So get cracking!
  2. The person who gets the most new child sponsors through the door will win a spot at this year’s Cycle for Girls trip to Cambodia. Think Angkor Wat at sunrise, delicious Fish amok, and of course, really tight glutes.
  3. Sponsors acquired through the competition can be new sponsors, current sponsors sponsoring an additional child, or Plan staff members.
  4. Referrals must be outside of normal roles. So if you’re a Donor Contact Consultant and you’ve had a stellar week on the phones – doesn’t count, sorry!
  5. Sponsors must be retained and pay for at least 3 months ($144), OR make a bi-annual or annual sponsorship payment. They must be active at the time the competition winner is drawn. Remember, we want keep sponsors for the long term… so if your friend is flaky, maybe reconsider signing them up.
  6. Competition opens on Friday 5 February and closes Tuesday 31 May 2016.
  7. Competition winner will be announced Wednesday 31 August.
  8. You must recruit a minimum of 5 child sponsors. EASY! But remember, the person who signs up the most sponsors wins, so don’t stop there.
  9. You must obtain approval from your manager to go on the trip before taking part, so they can start making arrangements to cover you while you’re busy recreating scenes from Tomb Raider.
  10. You must be available to travel on 6-16 October 2016. (Don’t be upset about missing International Day of the Girl in Melbourne - there’s always next year.)
  11. This is your chance to unleash your creative flair! If you win, you’ll be required to document your experiences, take photos, and provide (some) support for the adventure leader, Christina Taylor (she’s awesome to work with.)


Our Cycle for Girls trip is an 11-day adventure that gets you cycling deep into the Cambodian countryside with a passionate team of fundraisers. You’ll soar past rice paddies, meet welcoming locals, and explore breathtaking Angkor temples. Cycling up to 85km a day (it’s actually not that bad – trust us!!) this is your chance to see an intimate side of Cambodia most tourists miss.

You'll also travel to one of Plan International's projects on International Day of the Girl. You'll meet girls benefiting from Plan’s life-changing work and will be inspired by their individual stories.
