Our compassionate group of women and girls is growing thanks to you.
Together we are committed and engaged in making the world a better place by easing poverty and providing opportunity to women and girls who suffer from abuse, oppression and lack of opportunity.
Since 2014 we have raised nearly $43,000.00 for 15 different organizations, projects and individuals in 13 developing countries.
Our MAY 10, meeting was a huge success by any measure!
2 amazing groups that are making a difference in the lives of women and girls presented their cause and together we raised $7,860.00
Together We Give:
The funds donated to Together We Give will go along way in bringing social justice to women and girls in South Africa who face discrimination and lack of basic needs every moment of their lives. Together We Give was founded by Laura Marks who has dedicated her life to support those in the community of Kenhardt, South Africa.
Thanks for your sacrifice and commitment Laura.
Our donation of $3,455.00 will allow us to walk with Laura and the children of Kenhardt as she creates psycho-social programs for girls, Library Hall rent, materials, snacks and refreshments for program participants.
From Laura and the girls who will have a significant and long lasting benefit from your generosity…….Thank You!
Days For Girls
Elizabeth presented the reality many millions of women and girls face every day they have their periods….denial of social interaction, health risks, inability to attend school or work and humiliation. Days for Girls is a global organization that makes sustainable menstrual health solutions and provides education to women and girls. To date they have reached over one million females in need giving them back days of dignity, health, and opportunity. With your generous donation we along with ladies of the Chatham Chapter of Days for Girls are the “Fairy Godmothers” who give 5 days of opportunity instead of isolation.
Imagine what you would do with an extra 5 days per month and the incredible difference these women and girls will make in their communities and families.
To the ladies of the Chatham chapter of Days for Girls…..thank you for the commitment of time and material. We hope this donation allows you to purchase the needed supplies to continue your good work.
On behalf of those who will benefit from this gift but who will never know the source of the financial contribution….. Thank You……for the dignity and the days of freedom.
Women Helping Women meetings are an opportunity to gather with wonderful women and girls, to feel the energy and power that being engaged and making a difference does for your soul. We are an organization that is open and welcome all who want to make a difference in the lives of our sisters who suffer under tyranny and lack basic human rights. We are a gathering of women who understand the good fortune we have by living in Canada and understand that our Grandmothers and Great Grandmothers fought on behalf of the generations that followed them for women’s rights and equality. Today we are leaders in society, we are educated and strong and we women and girls of Women Helping Women are dedicated and committed to supporting women and girls around the world.
We gather to learn about 2 more worthy and important organizations that are making a difference in the lives of women and girls. Let’s keep the momentum going.
- share our story and the good work that is happening thanks to Women Helping Women
- bring a friend to a meeting
- share our Facebook posts, refer to our web page (womenhelpingwomen.ca)
- consider setting up a saving strategy for donations…..I have a friend who sets aside all her toonies between meetings and she is always surprised at the total she can donate, another sets aside whatever she has spent in clothes to donate…..

We have two gatherings per year. One in May (near Mother’s Day) and the other in October (near Thanksgiving). We present two carefully screened organizations or individuals at each meeting for you to learn about, advocate for, and donate to, if you choose. There are no obligations to give, and no membership fees. What you have with Women Helping Women are voices and choices.
There are also three options on how to participate:
- You can join like-minded women for dinner (anytime after 5 PM) at Country View Golf Course (they generously donate their conference room to our group)
- You can attend the presentation portion which begins after dinner (usually at 6:30 PM).
- You can review an online slideshow and donate through PayPal or credit card on our website.
