Turtle Dove hopes to provide opportunities to broaden the horizons and experiences of the young women involved. Inspired by her own life experience in volunteering overseas, Managing Director Kate Nation is consistently looking at ways to connect the young women with causes they care about. This has already included a group visiting Brazil and volunteering in a community centre. Part of the young women’s commitment to this was fundraising for the charity and raising awareness of the work they were involved with. It was a great opportunity for them to then share with others here what they had experienced.
Following the success of the first trip to Brazil, Turtle Dove are looking to work and collaborate with Revive International and Happy Child in Recife in the North of Brazil. Both charities have a focus on working with young women who have experienced abuse and exploitation, some of whom have been victims of trafficking – an issue that young women we work with have expressed their concern about. They hope to be able to offer young women the chance to gain some work experience in an overseas context to connect them with wider global issues affecting young women.
