Business Chicks 2019 India Journey

Off we go

Travelling today to India and I’ve decided to set another stretch. Why not?! 

Nervous and excited to get the adventure underway and humbled by the generosity and support that I have been overwhelmed by. Stay posted for photos and updates.

Just over a week to go- let's set a stretch

I am humbled and so appreciative of the incredible support I have received in my fundraising for such an incredible cause. With just over a week of fundraising left I think it's time to stretch myself... Let's aim for $15K not just $10K!

The money helps THP work to send girls to school #ItTakesAVillage, eradicate violence against women, end child marriage and the list goes on. 

Sincerely thank you

Just over halfway!

I am excited to have just exceeded the halfway mark!

Thank you to everyone who has so generously supported. A few shout outs to some amazing companies who have so generously sponsored me. Latitude Financial Services, Domestic and General Insurance - Australia and New Zealand, People Equity & VidCorp!

Next to raise more funds I am going to do an online auction. If you have any products or services you'd like to donate I'd be forever grateful.

I am Fundraising for the Hunger Project Australia.

Myself and 19 other remarkable female leaders are embarking on a journey that will take us to India to support the work of The Hunger Project as part of the 2019 Business Chicks India Journey. Personally I've chosen to push myself, get uncomfortable and grow to challenge myself. I am both excited and nervous about the adventure. 

All donations will go towards The Hunger Projects global programs in education, health, food security and female empowerment and are tax deductable.

The goal is to end world hunger by 2030. The Hunger Projects approach is different – they see people living in hunger as the solution, not the problem. They shift the mindsets of women and men so they transform into leaders for more sustainable futures. Through programs such as education, microfinance, agriculture and health, they empower people with the skills, knowledge and resources they need to break the poverty cycle themselves.

Your support will directly help to empower women from some of the world’s poorest communities to be the solution to the poverty and hunger that they face daily.

Thank you

Jo, what a great cause.. being of Indian decent and recently going back home it upsets me to see the lack of progression so thankyou for being a leader and visionary. There are people that don't understand how fortunate we are in this blessed country (Australia). This is another great stepping stone for empowerment not only for the country but more importantly women.
