Have you ever thought about how far your staff or co-workers have to walk each day to get to and from work? Those ladies who have to use public transport as they do not have any other means of getting to work. Have you ever asked them what time of the morning they get up? Walk to the taxi rank. Walk from where the taxi drops them to work. Reverse the process in the evening and still have to carry groceries home.
Be mindful of these wonderful women who are the backbone of your business. Be kind be empathetic.
Since January 2019 Ali has covered 5,531 kms on foot. She has walked every single step. No running, cycling or otherwise. Her aim is to raise awareness of the distances women have to walk, each and every day to get to and from work. #Walking4Women
You are invited to walk with Ali by following her on Facebook and Instagram. Encourage you staff and co-workers to be empathetic and aware to those who are perhaps a little weary when they get to work. By talking, sharing and encouraging you could make a huge difference to someone’s day.
EYES ON AFRICA
Women In Business, in collaborations with the African Millennium Foundation, formed this project about 10 years ago. Through the kind donation of citizens based in the Los Angeles area, Women In Business received readers (spectacles). In conjuction with a registered optometrist, Rod Hastie, we have been able to distribute readers and frames with rural women. This is an ongoing project which sadly came to a standstill during 2020 COVID lock down. Now that we in Level 1, Rod Hastie, is slowly getting back to rural areas and assiting women with sight issues.
If you would like to get involved please contact us. We would love to have your support.
