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.
Since 2014 we have raised over $35,000.00 for organizations, projects and individuals in 11 countries.
MAY 10, 2018 at Country View Golf Course will allow us to come together once again.
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 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…..
The following organization will be presenting at our May 10th meeting.
Days for Girls
When we mobilize girls and women through health and education opportunities, their communities and our world grow stronger.
Pads are a simple item that allow girls to go to school and women to go to work.
We are fortunate to have a group of dedicated and ambitious women from Chatham-Kent who gather material and spend time sewing pads and making “kits” that are delivered to women and girls in developing countries.
Women Helping Women is honoured to support and learn more about Days for Girls and their mission to bring washable and affordable solutions to menstruation and help women and girls make every day count.
The second organization to present will be.
