The women in our community have worked closely with the women of Lesotho over the past decade and there is a deep, and very cherished bond between the two groups. Our event, Women to Women, is a fundraiser that was created with them in our hearts.
Our Women to Women team collects donated new and gently used clothing, shoes and accessories year round. In a single day, they sort through countless bags of donated items and assemble them into an immense and beautiful pop-up boutique of unique, stylish and one-of-a-kind items.
The event proudly contributes to SDG No. 5 and actively supports Canada’s International Feminist Policy, but to our team, our volunteers and our community it is so much more. It’s an event for a group of women and girls in the tiny, rural African country of Lesotho whom we have all come to know and love. Who we have hugged and held, who we have learned from and cried with. Who have the right be educated and the right choose what they do with their bodies. Who have voices and songs, beautiful and sorrowful, that need to be amplified.
