With this campaign I would like to help empower women, young ladies and girls that want to remain independent to be able to seek help: financial, psychological, counselling, guidance, protection and education to assist them in pursuing their dreams, raising a family on their own, maintaining their homes, maintaining their dignity, growing as professionals, fostering personal growth and thriving in a world that is not built to be so kind to people that don't have the skills or self-worth or self-esteem or knowledge necessary to fulfill their dreams and live a life full of hope, dreams and happiness.
