Girls With Hammers is an initiative by Kerryn Vaughan and Nicky Williams focused on presenting events aimed at empowering women. No we're not about power tools or wood working classes although they do sound pretty neat and we just might include this down track! But for now we are about making sure women have what they need to be strong, treated fairly and respected for who they are rather than who society expects them to be.
Essentially we support an 'I CAN' attitude and know without a doubt that every woman is incredible - some just need to find their feet. Over many years of campaigning for equality by millions of women, it seems that women as a whole are still a long way from achieving that ultimate goal. This troubles us deeply so we've decided we're not going to sit around and complain about it - we are doing something about it!
We also love supporting NFP organisations whose goal is to make a better world. This one is for Heartprint Cambodia because we love what they are doing to empower women and girls, as well as the community they live in. Or should we say ‘thrive’ in.
Our goal is to raise $600USD so we can buy bicycles for 12 girls to get to school. But we would LOVE to exceed that and empower as many girls as possible. You may also wish to help with something even bigger than bikes, and we would LOVE that too!
Please help us to leave a Heartprint, and together we can make a kinder world.
