THE LIORA PROJECT

Australian Kate Mongomery heads up The Liora Project – a not-for-profit organisation that releases girls from human trafficking and sets them up with a safe and secure future by offering employment in centres established in India and the Philippines.

The girls are trained in sewing and jewellery making skills and are paid a living wage. The goal is for them to develop small but sustainable business enterprises which will help break this terrible cycle.

These clothes are sold online through the brand called Spirited Clothes. Your purchase of clothes and jewellery from the store directly helps the Liora Project. The more money they can raise, the more women and girls that can be freed from the horror of human trafficking.

SEVEN WOMEN

Seven Women is a not-for-profit organisation, socially and economically empowering marginalised and disabled women in Nepal through skills training and employment.

Melbourne girl Steph Woollard began Seven Women in 2007 as a grass roots development project to create change for seven women who were found operating out of a tin shed and enduring harsh discrimination as a result of being disabled.

Steph now designs what is sold herself and funds the project through the sale of the women’s hand-made products. They have now established four centres in Nepal (two in Kathmandu and two village projects) which have trained and employed over 900 women.

BRINGING THE LIGHT  Documentary filmed over a period of four years, follows a group of Nepalese women whose lives have been empowered through education, skills training and income generation.

CYCLING WITHOUT AGE

Cycling Without Age (CWA) is a worldwide movement that started in Denmark in 2012 that has brought the joy of cycling to thousands of people of all ages and abilities.

A lack of mobility is no longer an obstacle to getting around on a bike – everyone can enjoy the outdoors, the wind in their hair and the immeasurable lifestyle benefits that only a bike can provide.

Volunteer ‘pilots’ (cyclists) can take two elderly passengers in specially designed rickshaw cargo bikes to local parks, scenic places or just down to the shops.

CWA is about creating a multitude of new relationships: between generations, among the elderly, between pilots and passengers, nursing homes employees and family members.
