Welcome to our dedicated donations page, where we proudly showcase the initiatives and charities Lumia Care supports as part of International Women’s Day 2024. This year, under the global theme “Invest in Women, Accelerate Progress,” we’ve selected three impactful charities that embody our commitment to empowering women and girls across various spheres of life. Each organisation has been chosen for its remarkable work in breaking down barriers, fostering economic independence, and supporting the well-being of women and girls in communities worldwide.

As we join forces with The Sports Bra Project in association with Women’s Sport Australia, Fitted for Work, and Women for Women International, we invite you to explore these charities’ incredible work and consider supporting their missions. From providing essential sports attire to empowering women entering the workforce and helping those in war-torn regions to rebuild their lives, these initiatives highlight the power of collective action and investment in women’s futures. Join Lumia Care in making a tangible difference this International Women’s Day — because investing in women accelerates progress for all.

The Sports Bra Project

The Sports Bra Project, in partnership with Women’s Sport Australia, addresses a critical yet often overlooked barrier to sports participation for young women and girls globally—the lack of access to appropriate sports attire, specifically sports bras. By providing high-quality, high-impact sports bras to athletes who otherwise couldn’t afford them, this initiative empowers female athletes to participate comfortably and confidently in sports activities. This support not only aids in physical health and performance but also boosts self-esteem and promotes gender equality in sports.

This initiative aligns with the International Women’s Day 2024 theme of “Invest in Women, Accelerate Progress” by breaking down barriers hindering female participation in physical activities. By investing in the necessary resources to support women and girls in sports, The Sports Bra Project are making significant strides towards achieving gender equality in the athletic world. Their efforts showcase the importance of creating inclusive environments where women and girls can thrive, underscoring the broader message of empowerment and progress that International Women’s Day champions.

In support of this cause, Lumia Care has launched a GoFundMe campaign to further bolster the efforts of The Sports Bra Project. You can contribute to our cause at https://www.gofundme.com thesportsbraproject. Our mission is to raise $650 to purchase an additional ten high-impact sports bras, adding to the seven we have already procured. Please join us in making a tangible difference in the lives of aspiring female athletes by contributing to our campaign. Together, we can help ensure that every girl has the support she needs to excel and participate confidently in the sports she loves.

Fitted for Work: Empowering Women into Employment

Fitted for Work is a pioneering charity dedicated to helping women experiencing disadvantage gain independence through employment. This unique organisation provides women with practical services, including personal outfitting, interview preparation, and mentoring programs, to build their confidence and skills for the workforce. By focusing on the power of first impressions and ongoing support, Fitted for Work plays a critical role in breaking the cycle of poverty, empowering women to achieve economic security and contribute positively to their communities.

The mission of Fitted for Work resonates deeply with the theme of International Women’s Day 2024, “Invest in Women, Accelerate Progress.” By directly addressing the barriers that prevent women from participating fully in the economy, Fitted for Work not only champions the cause of gender equality but also demonstrates the significant societal and economic benefits that come from investing in women’s employment opportunities. In ensuring women are equipped, confident, and supported to enter or re-enter the workforce, this charity exemplifies the transformative impact of empowering women on a broader scale, embodying the essence of accelerating progress through investment in women.

Women for Women International: Strengthening Women in War-Torn Regions

Women for Women International is dedicated to supporting women in war-torn regions in rebuilding their lives through comprehensive social and economic empowerment programs. This esteemed charity offers support through education, training in life skills, and income generation, enabling women to move from crisis and poverty to stability and self-sufficiency. Women for Women International aims to promote peace and community rebuilding in areas devastated by conflict by focusing on women’s empowerment.

Currently, Women for Women International is running an impactful campaign where contributions made towards their programs are being matched threefold. This remarkable opportunity means that every dollar donated is tripled in value, maximising the support provided to women in need. Such a campaign is profoundly relevant to the theme of International Women’s Day 2024, “Invest in Women, Accelerate Progress,” as it embodies the tangible benefits of investing in women’s empowerment on a global scale. The tripled contributions significantly enhance the charity’s capacity to offer life-changing support to more women, demonstrating the exponential impact of collective investment in women’s futures.

Women for Women International’s campaign aligns with the ethos of International Women’s Day by highlighting the critical role of solidarity and support in advancing women’s rights and opportunities.
