During that time we have provided economic opportunities for women worldwide, often in places and at times when employment options were limited. We have seen that given the resources women can impact their lives, their families and their communities in a meaningful way.
In this spirit, Avon has created the Hello Tomorrow Fund. Starting in March and continuing to February 2008, we shall give away a total of £40,000 to people wishing to set up, develop or expand a programme, project or idea to empower women.
Applications – from women and men - must relate to projects or programmes in the county of Northamptonshire, the home of Avon UK.
'As a busy wife and mother I know first-hand the power of women to make a real difference at home, at work, as volunteers, friends and confidants. Our Hello Tomorrow Fund offers the opportunity for people to turn a wish into reality and by doing so create a better tomorrow for women and girls all over Northamptonshire. Please share your ideas and aspirations by applying for one of our cash awards… we look forward to hearing from you.'
President of Avon UK and Ireland
