Fundraiser for CARE Canada

Walk In Her Shoes 2014

CARE Canada and the members of I Am Powerful Vancouver have joined forces to participate in an annual WALK IN HER SHOES event to commemorate International Women's Day. We will be walking in support of a women's and girl's empowerment project in Bolivia.

Throughout Latin America, 12.6 per cent of the population lives in extreme poverty. In Bolivia, that number more than doubles with almost 33 per cent of Bolivians living in extreme hardship.

CARE’s Tukuy Yanapana ('we all collaborate') project in Bolivia aims to improve the profitability and competitiveness of family farms and small enterprises to increase incomes for women, men and youth.

Our goal is to raise a minimum of $10,000 which will empower women and girls to lift themselves and their families out of poverty by:

• educating women and men about gender roles in labour
• raising the visibility of unpaid work performed by women
• providing access to professional information and training, supplies and equipment
• working with municipal governments to develop policies and regulations that support small farmers and 

Thank you for visiting our giving page to consider making a tax-deductable contribution to our efforts, today!

We will be walking 8,000 steps (~ six kilometres) to simulate what a woman or girl experiences daily in the developing world. We would really appreciate your support in helping us reach our fundraising goal.

Donations raised for WALK IN HER SHOES will empower women, girls and communities to overcome poverty and adversity.

Thank you very much for your support,
