Fashion For Change #2


Fashion for Change is a charity event aimed to raise funds for Womankind Worldwide. Womankind Worldwide is a UK based, international Women’s Rights charity working to help women transform their lives and communities in Africa, Asia and Latin America. 

The Charity's motto is 'Equal, Respected, Proud' and its vision is of a world where being a woman does not limit choices, opportunities or rights, where ever she lives.

The Charity's aim is to support local Women’s Rights organizations and smaller local women's groups.  These groups, often at great personal risk to themselves, are challenging discrimination, human rights abuses and violence towards women within the countries and communities they are based in.

This is a charity where even small donations can make a significant difference, because the money is targeted to make maximum and lasting impact. Some examples are shown below.

$20 US could train a police person in Peru in issues of sexual exploitation, violence and women’s rights to ensure that they better support trafficked women and women in prostitution.

$60US could train a community paralegal in Ghana, to provide legal support to survivors of violence, helping them to obtain child custody, a divorce or to keep their home.

Looking at the figures, you can see that there is a real chance that money raised in Second Life could make a real difference somewhere.
