March 8 is International Women's Day. A global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

The theme for #IWD2017 is #beboldforchange - a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

Here are three ideas our ANZA members can #beboldforchange:


1. Give a young woman access to education through the ANZA Student Sponsorship Program



2. Support one of the many businesses run by local women that feature at our Friday coffee mornings, Bazaars and in the ANZA Shop


For example: textiles by House of Diamonds, who employ at risk women giving them a path out of poverty.

Read more about House of Diamonds in ANZA Berita.

3. Donate your unwanted goods to support

For example: Yayasan Rumah Kasih Karunia (the House of Grace) has been set up as a Safe House and training centre with help from Priscilla Hall Memorial Foundation to help sexually exploited young women in Jakarta learn new skills and find new pathways.
 
If you are leaving Jakarta or having a ‘turn out’ they can pick up your unwanted items for their Thrift Shop to sell with the money going back to support their House of Grace activities.
