Stepping Stones empowers women and seeks your support for the IWD campaign

07 March 2017

On the eve of International Women’s Day, we applaud the 149 entrepreneurs from 45 different countries who’ve empowered themselves by taking part in our Stepping Stones to Small Business program.

Stepping Stones provides training and support for refugee, migrant and asylum seeker women, and we urge you to show your support for the program's IWD fundraising campaign.

One of our program partners is Banyule City Council, and we have joined forces to make this video.

Watch the video on YouTube.
