|COPENHAGEN Nike Vapormax Off White UK , Jan. 13 (Xinhua) -- Former Danish prime minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt was appointed as the new chief executive of Save the Children International, the children charity organization announced on Wednesday.
Thorning-Schmidt replaces Jasmine Whitbread as head of the umbrella organisation for the Save the Children movement, with responsibility for programs reaching over 55 million children in 120 countries, the organization said in a statement published on its website.
"We are very pleased to appoint a new CEO with a proven track record of international leadership and a passion to improve the world for children," Alan Parker, chairman of Save the Children International Air Jordan 1 Off White UK , said in the statement.
Parker said it is not right that many children continue to suffer and die unnecessarily and to be held back from fulfilling their potential in the 21st century.
"Helle shares this conviction deeply and I believe that she can play a real role in helping to increase our impact and deliver real improvements for children," Parker said.
Thorning-Schmidt will take up her position on April 4, and will be based at Save the Children International's headquarters in London.
Thorning-Schmidt, 49, led a coalition Danish government for a full parliamentary term from 2011 until 2015 before she stepped down after losing a parliamentary election on June 18, 2015 Nike Air Presto Off White UK , to Lars Loekke Rasmussen.
Commenting on her appointment, Thorning-Schmidt said there is still much more to do to rescue children from suffering and danger although the world has made unprecedented progress in reducing child mortality in recent decades.
"Children's protection, rights and development have always been close to my heart, and I look forward to doing everything I can to help us deliver on our bold but simple ambitions: that no child under five dies from preventable causes, all children get access to quality education and that no child should live with violence and abuse," she said in the statement.
Save the Children International Nike Blazer Off White UK , formed in 2010, is part of the charity organization Save the Children, which also comprises 30 member organizations that work together to deliver change for children in 120 countries.

US sports gear giant Nike was caught off guard as the new sponsor of China's national soccer team and had to improvise kits and other equipment less than a week before the highly-anticipated Asian Cup campaign.
Nike struck a deal worth $16 million (100 million yuan) a year to be the team's gear supplier until 2026 after China Football Association ended its more than 30-year-old partnership with Adidas, Nike's biggest global competitor, at the end of 2014.
Nike was allowed to provide the new home shirts China will wear at the 2015 Asian Cup, featuring the traditional red color and white polo collar, while the away shirts will see a striking red vertical stripe running down and a red armband, according to Tencent Sports.
The design Nike Air Max 90 Off White UK , though based on the golden fashion mantra "less is more", still drew criticism as some thought it was incomplete without the dragon element, the traditional Chinese totem.
Others supported Nike, arguing that the Asian Cup demand came at a short notice for Nike as usually companies get a year to start preparations for tailor-made kits for their clients.
China will kick off its Asian Cup competition with a Group B game against Saudi Arabia on Jan 10.
Chinese soccer fans, many of whom have been disheartened by the team's poor performance in past years, still pin their hopes on its better form in warm-ups and its new French coach Alain Perrin Off White Nike UK , who also sees the Asian Cup as a testing ground of his capabilities.
The men's team has often lit the fuse of public fury for their lack of spirit and energy following some fiascos, including the humiliating 5-1 defeat to a half-string Thailand team in a 2013 friendly.
