Content Item - Seven Women

6th October, 2015

Mantra Hotel, Southbank

Guest Speaker: Stephanie Woollard - Founder of Seven Women

Seven Women began in 2007 as a grass roots development project to create change for seven women who were found operating out of a tin shed and enduring harsh discrimination as a result of being disabled. Seven Women founder Stephanie Woollard first met these women and invested in training in the hope that gaining a skill would give them a means to earn an income. Steph now designs what is sold herself and funds the project through the sale of the women's hand-made products. Through a dedicated and passionate team we have been able to establish four centres in Nepal (two in Kathmandu and two village projects) which have trained and employed over 900 women.
