A Face, A Name, A Dream, A Soul
Her Handwork is a social enterprise based in Melbourne, Victoria. We invest in the potential of children and women at risk.
The highest growth rates occur in the poorest countries. Poverty is more than just the lack of finances to ensure a sustainable and dignified livelihood. Hunger, malnutrition, limited access to education and early childhood deaths manifests itself in poverty. As our population grows, so will the many children who will endure a life of high social risk. Ask the poor man what his greatest asset is and he would probably tell you it's his children. Unless the lives of the children change, the cycle of poverty will continue.
Children and childhoods are at risk like never before. Poverty and injustice renders the poor and weak totally defenceless. They are susceptible to violence and exploitation. There are about 40 million people trapped in chains of slavery today.
The statistics for poverty and modern day slavery seem very daunting. But behind the figures is a face, a name, a dream and a soul. If we could all just impact one life, imagine the change we can make.
Your giving can change destinies.
They matter. They count.
'Our P/L should not just read Profit & Loss but People & Lives.
And maybe the world's most pressing problems can be addressed in our lifetime. But it will require a collective effort and commitment from all of us.'
