You're invited! Join us for our 1st Gala Event in London!
Our event will be an evening of great speakers, drinks, music and networking to support the efforts of the International Womens Initiative to bring attention to women’s human rights globally, and specifically our flagship project the Safe Birthing Programme (http://bit.ly/2a4KWLy). We're launching the SBP to help reduce the maternal death rate in Northern Uganda.
Each birthing kit we provide to local health centres costs just under £1 to put together but this small amount of money can mean the difference between life and death for mothers and their newborns. Each ticket purchased for the event means many more birthing kits we're able to provide to Ugandan community health centres!
We're delighted to be joined by special guest speakers Dr. Gina Heathcote, Senior Lecturer in Gender Studies and International Law and Chair of the SOAS Centre for Gender Studies, as well as Mandy Forrester, Head of Quality and Standards, The Royal College of Midwives.
We're also excited to have special guests SHE Choir London performing (http://bit.ly/2a7uJYy) and delicious food/drink very kindly donated by Salt & Dry catering, Crate Brewery, Gosnell's London Mead, Beavertown Brewery, The Vegan Nigerian, Onidodo catering, The Five Points Brewing Company, Wild Card Brewing Company, Soffle's Pita Chips and Barefoot & Bubbly wine. So much good stuff!
We'll also be having a raffle with great prizes to be won, including a FitBit, dinner for two at Zoe's Ghana Kitchen, original artwork, custom made floral crowns, PHYTO5 skincare, and a cookery class with E5 bakehouse.
(Dress code is casual)
We can't wait to see you all there!
