Our next Women Helping Women meeting is Tuesday, May 12, 2015 at the Country View Golf Course. Come and meet other like-minded women for dinner at 5:30 p.m. The meeting will start at 6:30 p.m.
We’ll have two new recipient organizations to introduce to the group. TAWINA and HIME for Help will be presented.
TAWINA is a very important recipient organization. Their prime efforts are helping to educate and empower rural women and girls to realize their potential, claim their rights and lead social change. Their work is organized around three themes–Women, Girls and the Environment and five sectors; namely, agriculture, health, education, environment and entrepreneurship.
HIME for Help is another important recipient. Emily Hime, born and raised in Chatham, founded this non-profit organization in 2012. Emily is now running Maison Ke Kontan Children’s Home in Port Au Prince where seventeen children currently reside. As well as running the children’s home she also sponsors over ten children and families who are living in extreme poverty and gives these children an opportunity to attend school. She also supports a tent city consisting of 76 people where she provides clothing, food, and medical treatment as well as a remote village in the mountains of Montrouis where she personally sponsors a family of nine and provides care packages, medical care, clothing, and food for other Haitians in the village.
