I watched a documentary on the Half the Sky movement a few months back and was absolutely astounded at the dedication of the women involved in so many projects which fall under the Half The Sky banner!
Having two daughters of my own, the fact that their focus is on creating opportunities for opressed women and girls spoke very deeply to my heart, and made it impossible for me not to want to do something in support of this movement.
I found out quite late about the latest Raise for Women Challenge, a month-long fundraising drive for these organisations, but have decided that I'd do my best in the coming week to raise as much as possible.
The greatest difficulty for me was deciding which organisation to select for the challenge. In the film, the New Light shelter in India stood out as an incredible organisation, and the founder, Urmi Basu, inspired and humbled me in every way. Read more about New Light here: http://www.newlightindia.org
So, I've started this page to raise awareness and challenge all the women in my life, whether we are in frequent contact or not, to donate to this awesome cause!
We only have a week, so please share and donate as much and as quickly as possible!
