International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8th across the world. IWD is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women in the past, present and future. It is an occasion for looking back on past struggles and accomplishments, and more importantly, for looking ahead to the untapped potential and opportunities that await future generations of women. IWD is all about unity, celebration, reflection, advocacy and action. The day is celebrated globally, it is a big day for inspiration and change.

For us at Hands, IWD is an opportunity to join the conversation and to recognise and celebrate women but also the men that are achieving within our communities. Be it directors in our homes, kids taking on big university goals or sewers in our craft shop, we celebrate their contribution and achievements across the year. 


2019 #balanceforbetter

Each year there is a theme that supports IWD. The 2019 theme is #BalanceforBetter with a focus on continuing the conversation towards a gender-balanced world. We are in a period of history where the world expects balance – we notice its absence and celebrate its presence. “Balance drives a better working world. Let’s all help create a #BalanceforBetter.”

We have always looks to create meaningful and sustainable ways of raising funds. To assist in achieving that outcome we are re-launching Hands Designs to include fashion and corporate merchandise. The social enterprise not only generates income but creates local employment opportunities in our homes in Thailand that might otherwise not exist.  You can read more about Hands Designs here

The 2020 campaign theme will be released soon. For now save Tuesday 10th March in your diary for what will be another special event. More detail will be posted here soon.
