Here at Turtle Dove we recognise that the issues young women face are global, systemic issues. We want to connect young women in Cambridge to the plight of young women worldwide whilst adding to their skillset and experience.
We have consequently been fundraising to take a team to volunteer with Revive International in Brazil who support young women who have suffered abuse and trafficking.
Revive have asked us to deliver some of the following activities with them: English lessons, self-esteem, understanding healthy relationships, aspirations workshops, and creative exploration sessions.
To date, we’ve hosted Brazilian dinners, Brazilian chocolate tasting and knowledge evening, an 80s disco and more – raising just under £8,000 so far! Here, some young women have been involved in the planning, delivery and review of these fundraising events and challenges. This has added a depth of experience and engagement alongside the regular events we support or host.
***Due to the COVID19 crisis we have had to put this (ad)venture on hold***
However, do keep an eye out for any changes and any fundraising efforts as they will be added here: https://www.peoplesfundraising.com/fundraising/brazil-and-beyond
