Educating girls can break cycles of poverty in just one generation, yet millions of girls aren’t in school.
Girl Rising uses storytelling to inspire action that gets girls into classrooms worldwide.
Because Empowering Girls Matter. Out of the world’s 130 million out-of-school youth, 70% are girls. Girl Rising seeks to support young girls and give them a better start to womanhood by not only advancing their knowledge, but by ensuring the boys and men in their community see the value of healthy, educated and empowered local women. Our goal is to see young women and better informed young men, working together to close the huge gender equality gap that still exists in many countries around the world.
Every adolescent girl has the right to health, education and protection from violence and abuse.
Refreshments will be available on the night from the venue and we have a charity cake sale to support this amazing charities!
The Women in Photography Conference is organised by Amber Leach, founder of Liberty Pearl Photography, an award winning wedding photography business based in Plymouth, Devon.
Amber started her wedding photography business in November 2013. She progressed from working in large structured organisations to being self employed and working from home. Whilst she enjoyed the independence of being self employed and her new found freedom from the chains of a 9-5 office job, she also missed having people around to run ideas past, share triumphs with, or receive encouragement from.
Amber has now established Women in Photography – Devon and Cornwall so she could meet other like minded creative photographers and film makers to share her passion with and to find people that understand her life as a self employed freelance photographer.
It is proven that friends ‘at work’ form a strong social support network for each other, both personally and professionally. Whether cheering for each other on big wins, consoling each other about mistakes, giving advice, or providing support for personal situations, comradeship at work can boost an employee’s spirit and provide needed assistance.
Amber is excited to meet and collaborate with amazing photographers for an afternoon of inspiration and fellowship with like minded creatives!
