Best Foot Forward 2021

We’re asking for your help so that SHE can put HER best foot forward.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, violence against women and girls has intensified.

The opportunity to gain education and skills is the key to HER long-term empowerment.

Our goal is to raise $150,000 in 24 hours on the 12th November 2021, so that disadvantaged women and girls can have access to opportunity through education.
