WE fortunate women and girls have the opportunity to come together once again with grateful hearts to celebrate our ability to support our sisters in need on October 17, 2019. Everyone is welcome as we learn about, advocate for and support some of the worlds most vulnerable…women and girls in developing countries. Our goal continues to be that we who have a voice and strength can make a positive difference in the world and thanks to our members we have done just that!
On Oct 17, 2019 at Country View Golf Course, Women Helping Women will present Giving Back-Face of Africa Today and Possibilities International.
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 over $60,000.00 for 19 different organizations, projects and individuals in 15 developing countries.
Together we unleash the waves of change that carry hope and opportunity for generations.
Our next gathering will be October 17, 2019.
Mark your calendars and lets do it again!
October 17 is only days from our traditional Canadian Day of Thanksgiving…..a time where we consider all the blessings and opportunities this great nation has provided and in keeping with this theme we are fortunate to have 2 amazing organizations to present.
Giving Back-Face of Africa Today
Emily Sheff is local to the Wallaceburg area and has traveled much of the world with a passion for photography and learning the story of the people and countries she has visited. Emily spent 15 months in Africa and experienced the land, the people and the rich culture first hand and witnessed the need of girls to attain an education. Giving Back-Face of Africa is a project that provides high school and post-secondary education to women and girls from the remote Lake Turkana region of Northern Kenya. Emily is raising funds to support girls education in Northern Kenya and is doing so through sales of her prints, speaking engagements and donations to bring the opportunity of education one girl at a time. The cost of a years high school education is $480.00 (Canadian) and we look forward to hearing Emily’s story and supporting her in brining hope to girls in Turkana Kenya.
Jodi-Degroot-Primmer is an international nurse/trip facilitator with Possibilities International from the Sarnia area.
