WOW WOW WOW!! I've done it! 365 days and 12 more hours! Thank you so much to everyone who has donated, you have been amazing! With the money raised WOW has been able to support all the women by paying their rent for a year, re-invest into their businesses, helping them to become self-sufficient, and also pay for a business trainer for 9 months to mentor and support the women! How amazing from one denim dress and everyone who supported me! Thank you!!!
Rachel, the Director of WOW is wearing the same dress for one year to raise funds to prevent women and their children on the WOW Project in Ethiopia from being evicted from their homes. Many of the women have lost their businesses and income due to Covid19, and face the threat of eviction as they are unable to pay their rent. Rachel has personally met these women and worked with them for over ten years now. Rachel cannot bear the thought of them ending up on the streets of Addis Ababa.
