NATURAL ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Israeli former President Shimon Peres granted the "Women Leading Change" award to International supermodel Naomi Campbell to honor her work for women across the globe at an event celebrating International Women's Day on Tuesday (March 8). Campbell arrived in Israel at the invitation of Israel's ninth president to participate in the event at the Peres Centre for Peace in Jaffa where she was greeted by 100 Israeli (Jewish and Arab) and Palestinian young girls participating in the Peres Centre's Girls' Twinned Peace Sports Schools program, the Peres Centre said in a written statement. Campbell offered some advice to the young women.

About 200 women from various sectors in Israel attended the event.
