What gets me out of bed every morning is the knowledge I am using my experience and energy to support those who are working to make the world a better place....
One way in which I do that is as an “Unleashed Women” champion, enabling me and many others to come together and tackle critical challenges women are facing globally, every day.
The “Unleashed Women” movement was created by The Hunger Project. Having raised over £500 last year, thanks to your help, I have committed to raising a further £500 for the organisation’s work in the next 12 months. In donating the money you would have once spent on buying me “stuff” we can support The Hunger Project’s work to create more independent and resilient communities in South Asia, Latin America and Africa.
Studies have shown that when women are supported and empowered to build their capacity, they become key change agents in their own community and all of society benefits. My friend Beth (1956 – 2017) knew this and spent her life working with communities in the Philippines, her home country, and in Bangladesh, Cambodia, Thailand and Myanmar. I dedicate this page to Beth Lim, an inspirational and unleashed woman!
Thank you for helping me to celebrate my birthdays and Christmases in this way, for remembering Beth, and for supporting The Unleashed Women Leadership Fund!
The Unleashed Women Collective
I have joined Unleashed Women – a global movement empowering women to end hunger.
Please make a tax deductible donation and help me reach my goal. What impact will your donation have?
£25 could fund functional adult literacy training for two women so that they can learn to read and write.
£30 could provide one woman with a microfinance loan and financial literacy training so she can start a small business, earn an income and support her family.
£65 could train a local volunteer leader who will educate mothers about the importance of pre-natal care to ensure their babies are delivered safely.
£125 could train one Elected Woman in India to be an effective local council member and ban child marriage in her community.
Every pound counts! Anything you can contribute is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
