Im going to be brave and prove myself wrong (& right)
I am fundraising for the Hunger Project Australia.
Myself and 19 other remarkable female leaders have embarked on a journey that will take us to India to support the work of The Hunger Project as part of the 2019 Business Chicks Indian Journey.
Why: Life throws curve balls and wake up calls and one of mine came last year when my dad died of cancer. He was such a driven human who constantly stood up for what he believed in and what he thought was right even when it wasn't the popular decision. He fought for change in his local community and in causes that he strongly believed in and it made me question my stance, beliefs and place in the world. So here I am stepping way out of my comfort zone to ensure that I make a positive impact in whatever way, shape or form that is.
Your tax- deductible donation will go a long way to empower women to enact change within their own communities to create a brighter future without hunger or poverty. I thank you for your support.
WHERE DOES YOUR MONEY GO?
$25 could provide workbooks and chalk to a nursery school in Africa so they can continue to learn to read and practice writing
$45 could fund a VISION, COMMITMENT, ACTION WORKSHOP for a community
$50 can provide anti-malarial bed nets to five families.
$100 is the size of the first micro-finance loan for a budding female entrepreneur. This is enough to purchase a pig to farm or purchase equipment to start a small business
$120 could train 40 people in effective farming techniques
$260 is the cost of training one elected women's representative for a year to strengthen leadership capabilities OR it could provide 4 people with entrepreneurial training and a microfinance loan
$500 could allow a community to purchase food processing equipment reducing the amount of time it takes to prepare dietary staples. This allows more time to spend earning an income and educating their children
$1,300 is the cost of training 1 elected women representative for 5 years across her tenure in government
$5,000 can train 25 HIV animators in Africa. AIDS is 100% preventable. If empowered with accurate information, and freed from social taboos, attitudes and behaviours that fuel the epidemic, the people of Africa have proven that they can protect themselves and their families.
Please feel free to contact me if you would like additional information on THP or how my fundraising journey is going.
