Pippi of Today

Girls on the move are the Pippis of today

Pippi of today is an initiative from The Astrid Lindgren Company in partnership with Save the Children supporting girls that are on the move. Pippi Longstocking is a fictional character created by Swedish author Astrid Lindgren, 75 years ago. The Second World War was ending, and millions of girls were on the move.

Today many more girls are forced to leave their homes, and not only move to new cities but also to new countries. They need to gather all their strength, courage and hope to tackle challenges and find their way to a brighter future. Support girls on the move - the Pippis of today!
