days to go


Recently I completed the Brisbane Oxfam Trailwalker. Not only did I find a new passion (hiking), I also learnt about Oxfam’s amazing work in helping communities in crisis and empowering communities to build better lives for themselves.

I am excited to continue my support for Oxfam and join the Vietnam Trek to tackle poverty. By joining the Trek to Tackle Poverty, I'll be raising funds to help Oxfam Australia increase the social and economic empowerment of women in Vietnam. I will visit a community in Lao Cai province and learn about the benefits of the WEAVE project, “Women’s Economic Empowerment Through Agriculture Value Chain Enhancement”.The project promotes more equitable gender power
relations in the home. It also helps female farmers to improve their bargaining power and better market their pork, cinnamon and banana produce in the community, increasing their income.

Thanks for your support and helping me reach my fundraising target!
