Critically-acclaimed actress Naomie Harris starred in the Nelson Mandela biopic Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom opposite Idris Elba.

She also played Miss Moneypenny in the James Bond films Skyfall and Spectre.

“Save the Children offered me the opportunity to see some of their work and that offer galvanised my wish to try and do something to help [South Africa’s] young people fulfil their potential," she said.

"I look forward to raising awareness of these issues not only in South Africa, but in other countries where Save the Children fights for girls and women’s rights.”

Naomie also supported the Action/2015 campaign, calling on governments to implement the new Global Goals which seek to end poverty, inequality and tackle climate change.

She said: “The Global Goals are the most ambitious plan to tackle poverty and inequality we have ever seen. They are an incredible opportunity and we must not let it go to waste if we want to transform the world for the better – not only for our generation but the next.”

As part of her role for Save the Children, Naomie hopes to visit more of our programmes to see how they're making a difference to the lives of the most vulnerable women and young girls.
