International Women's Day may be behind us, but we're here to celebrate women every day. Because women don’t matter for just 24 hours! If you’re looking to participate and join in on this social contest, here’s your guide!
Vision Rescue & Giving for Good have partnered for a unique #giveaway, as we celebrate women, empower them, and maximise their potential. Through this contest, both non-profits aim to spread awareness about the importance of skill development for Indian women who come from low-income communities. Our goal is to empower, not compare, insult, or discourage women. Our gift hampers are handcrafted by women, for women. This being an Instagram contest, all participants must dedicate one or more Instagram stories to the women in their lives they wish to celebrate.
Simple steps to submit your entries for this Instagram contest:
Contest start date: 11th March 2023
Contest end date: 25th March 2023
Winners will be announced by the end of this month. So, why wait? Hype up the women in your life, today and every day!
Giving for Good and Vision Rescue’s #EverydaySheroes contest aims to promote awareness for a campaign that empowers women and youth living in the slums of Mumbai through vocational skill training. By providing upskilling opportunities, we aim to assist 117 women and youth in securing steady income, thus breaking the cycle of poverty in their families. Additionally, we intend to expand our efforts by adding 185 more women to this program.
