Women Worldwide Active festival at Pop Brixton

Women Worldwide Active is a social enterprise that was launched in May 2016 to empower women through creativity, knowledge, and skills via programmes that teach unemployed, low income women and other women who wish to take part, to make artisan products.

Women join the network for an opportunity to change the course of their lives and a fresh start; lives that have been affected by extremely life challenging situations. Their backgrounds are diverse – but they all have one thing in common – they all want a better future.

Women Worldwide Active teach a craft, which creates products and purpose. The products are made available on BackHER Crowdfund platform BackHer launched in May 2016 is a Social Impact Movement & Collaborative of volunteers and organisations.
