During the slow season I do a bit of volunteer photography. Its a great way to get out and meet people, and try out new lighting and practice event photography. I recently volunteered in Vancouver at One Girl Can Fundraising Event, with benefits going towards Women Leading Change. Women Leading Change is a Vancouver foundation that builds schools and educates girls in Africa.
The fearless leader of this foundation, Lotte Davis is originally from South Africa. Lotte experienced first hand the inequality and mistreatment of females, and is dedicated to empowering girls in Africa through education. Women Leading Change currently has five schools built and has raised over 1 million dollars!
What is unique about this organization is that ALL the profits raised goes directly to the girls in Africa. Lotte is founder and CEO of Vancouver’s AG Hair. When you purchase AG Hair products, a portion of every sale goes directly to the foundation. AG Hair provides administrative, marketing, accounting and web support, which means 100% of funds raised goes directly to our projects in Africa.
