Women Empowered Fund Launch Brisbane
When: 16 February 2023 – 6:00pm – 9:00pm
Where: WeWork Brisbane, 260 Queen Street, Brisbane
Join us for a special evening launching our new ‘Women Empowered Fund’. The Fund has been created to recognise and address the issues of gender inequality that women face in overcoming hunger and poverty in the countries where we work. Women bear almost all responsibility for meeting basic needs of the family, yet are systematically denied the resources, information and freedom of action they need to fulfil this responsibility. As a result, the world’s poor are overwhelmingly women, as well as two thirds of the world’s illiterate population. And while women make up almost half of farmers in developing countries, they produce up to 30% less than their male counterparts, and account for less than 15% of farmland owners.
To highlight the challenges that result in these startling statistics and the incredible change made possible through the work of The Hunger Project, we will be joined by incredible guests and speakers:
- Philippe Magid, CEO of The Hunger Project Australia
- Grace Chikowi, Country Director of Malawi
- Belinda Brosnan, Author, Executive Coach and THP Immersion Program Facilitator
