“From what we get, we can make a living;
what we give, however, makes a life.”
– ARTHUR ASHE –
Paying it forward, allows us to empower and enable others. I hold a strong belief that by changing the way women relate to money, we can change communities and the world. Two of the organisations that I work with, do just that!
One of the amazing charities we support is charity:water. If you haven’t heard of charity: water, be prepared to be inspired. charity:water is an amazing nonprofit transforming people’s lives through one of the most vital elements of life – WATER.
charity:water brings clean and safe drinking water to people in need around the world, improving health, education, and opportunity – especially for women who’s “job” it is to trek for miles every day, lugging water to villages. Thanks to charity:water – millions of women and girls are freed from this ‘water’ slavery enabling them to have significantly better quality lives which in turn allows all of us to benefit from their real value being brought into the world.
The founder, Scott Harrison’s story is in itself pure inspiration.
100% of the royalties from The Wealth Chef book go to the SEF – not-for-profit, pro-poor micro-finance institution, in South Africa. It empowers South Africa’s poorest communities, through women, to improve their lives and escape poverty by helping to provide access to appropriate financial services.
In July of 2016, 67 business executives and celebrities will be trekking up Mount Kilimanjaro to raise funds and awareness for the Imbumba Foundation’s Caring4Girls programme which provides sanitary care for underprivileged girls across South Africa. We are looking to raise R40,000,000 to be able to support 270,000 with sanitary pads for a year.
