Women for Change

Women for Change, a committee of the LBW Trust was established in 2016 with the mission to empower women through education.

 

We support educational programs for young disadvantaged women in developing countries, driving positive and ongoing change to women, their families and their communities. We also seek to empower and mentor talented professional women and students in Australia and to engage them in philanthropy.

Women for Change is governed by Learning for a Better World (The LBW Trust).

Kakenya’s Dream, in Kenya, is the current beneficiary of all WFC activities. WFC is supporting over 80 Maasai girls to complete their tertiary education. They are the first girls in their communities to receive tertiary education. The majority of students are studying in Kenya, although the top 3 are attending universities in Sydney (UTS, WSU, Uni. Syd).  

 

WFC is committed to providing an endowment fund to ensure tertiary education remains within the reach of Maasai girls in the future. Fundraising for the endowment is underway.

 

Women for Change supports tertiary educational programs for women in developing nations to create a future that would not normally be accessible to them. Women for Change also empowers and mentors women in Australia who engage in fundraising activities to support these programs.

When girls are educated, their countries become stronger and more prosperous.
