Description

You are invited to the photography launch event - Empowering Women Entrepreneurs Worldwide at Gallery@oxo, London on Wednesday 28 February, 6.30-8.30pm. This exhibition is part of CARE International's wider #March4Women campaign, a month of action for gender equality.

The photographs on display, which have been commissioned and curated by arts social enterprise FotoDocument, showcase the work of CARE International UK's Women's Economic Empowerment work through our micro-lending platform, Lendwithcare.org. The work features inspiring women from five of the countries where Lendwithcare operates, visually illustrating how access to finance can provide lasting social and economic impact and change.

Lendwithcare is an innovative way to provide business skills training and microloans to entrepreneurs in developing countries as a means for people, especially women, to work their way out of poverty with dignity. UK individuals and businesses can become lenders through Lendwithcare and once the loans have been repaid, they can be reinvested or reclaimed by the lender.

At the launch, you will have the chance to view and purchase the framed photographs on display, listen to our inspirational speakers, including Nilufar Verjee, Director Women's Economic Empowerment at CARE International UK and one of the photographers, Shai Chisty who photographed the women in Pakistan. You will also have the opportunity to network with our guests, including our corporate partners who actively engage in and support our Women's Economic Empowerment work.

FotoDocument will also be announcing the launch of their Year 2 FotoAward for women documentary photographers supported by Olympus.

In addition, all those who lend through Lendwithcare on the night will be entered into a competition to win a beautiful framed print from the exhibition!

Photographers commissioned include: Ana Caroline de Lima, Cynthia Matonhodze, Shai Chishty (speaker), Veejay Villafranca and Tsvangirayi Mukwazhi.

The exhibition has been made possible by the support of global law firm, Hogan Lovells.

We look forward to seeing you there!
