Business Chicks 2019 India Journey

With your help I can make a difference to the lives of women across India

Indian women are some of the most disadvantaged and marginalised people in the world.

For over 30 years the Hunger Project has been working in India on programs to empower women and their communities. One such program encourages women to join elected village councils. The leadership skills that the program develops in this group that was traditionally denied a voice has led to systemic change in areas such as sanitation, education, health care and food security. This self-reliant action is empowering women to be part of the change making process and respected leaders in their communities.

My motivation
As a long time supporter of the Hunger Project I’m impressed with the high level of sustained impact they’ve achieved in disadvantaged communities in 22 countries across the globe.

I feel privileged to be travelling to India to participate in the Hunger Project’s Women in Leadership program. I’ll be part of a group of female leaders embarking on a fully immersive journey in February 2019. I feel that my knowledge and expertise will benefit these women and the experience will be invaluable to me personally and professionally.

This is going to be an adventure of a life time, but I need your support.

Now this is where you come in….
I have been set the goal of raising $10,000 to help the Hunger Project. This money is used to deliver these transformational projects that I am excited to contribute to.

I ask you to donate to my fundraising efforts (you are not paying for my trip or experience - I fund that myself). Throughout my fundraising campaign I’m planning some innovative activities that will be fun, creative and meaningful, just like me!

Thank you for your generosity and support of me and the Hunger Project.

What a great project Liza! India is a wonderful country but terribly sad to see the poverty. It is shocking and this project will be very worthwhile. Despite the poverty, we loved India! and I know you will too.
