Business Chicks 2018 Senegal Journey

It's About Connecting For Community!

I have been connecting with, caring for and supporting women for many years, as a Dr. Chinese medicine, Pregnancy and Birth Mentor, and as a Doula.  I now want to extend that life work by stepping out into the fields of Africa to experience how women support each other in their daily lives.  Connecting, sharing and caring for one another.  Learning from their female leaders, putting simplicity back into life and looking at what is important in the here and now.

The vehicle for this experience will be a Hunger Project/Business Chicks Immersion trip to Senegal, Africa in February 2018.  The trip for me is about building, creating and learning how I can reach goals, how I can make a difference, one step at a time.  However, to qualify for this trip I need to raise $10,000 that will go directly to The Hunger Project to support their work in ending hunger by transforming communities and empowering people to take ownership of change - both in rural villages across Africa, India and Bangladesh and here in Australia.  I will be meeting my own costs of the trip, but to raise this $10,000 I need your help. 

So I am asking for you to help me by making a tax-deductable donation that will allow the start of something wonderful for me and allow women within the communities of Senegal to have a future without poverty or hunger. To build communities, that allow for change, building women leaders and creating opportunities to share and connect. 

Thank you for any support that you can offer!
