PRESENTATION on Friday, June 8th: The Tsunami and the Women. Connecting Women and Children for Hope!

Dear Women without Borders,


we cordially invite you to our project and filmpresentation this Friday, June 8th, at 11.30 am in the KulturCafe (Radio Kulturhaus, Argentinierstrasse 30a, 1040 Vienna)!

Together with Archana Kapoor, our Indian project partner, we produced a film. “Life beyond Tsunami” which delightfully documents this best practice model where disaster management was put into the womens’ hands in order to guarantee benefit for the whole community.
From renting nets and boats to the male fisherman, to driving the catch to the new market, running a taxi service and managing the accounts using computer software and learning to swim these really innovative women-led approaches improved income generation and empowered 27 villages very traditional fishing communities

We are looking forward welcoming you!
