Bollywood Night – Tamil Women’s Organisation
Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal.
We, the Tamil Womens’ Organisation (TWO), are a small group of women who put aside our busy schedules to raise funds for organisations providing much needed support in the North and East of Srilanka. For our second event this year we are delighted to support Palmera’s Women’s Banking Network project.
This project will work with 110 women to help connect them to mainstream financial services. This will allow women to save and access loans to meet their needs and those of their families. Individually, it provides an avenue for women to engage with financial activity and strengthens their financial literacy skills. For as little as $56 per lady per year the project can be achieved. We think this is such a great initiative and are thrilled to be supporting it.
About 15 years ago TWO held a Bollywood night to support tsunami victims and it was a sold out event and we’ve had similar interest for this year too. Our first Bollywood event involved great food, dancing and company and this year’s event did the same.
TWO members are very pleased to share that our event was a great success. A fantastic night was had by all including Bollywood dance performances and even a dance lesson for all guests in the famous, Lunghi Dance!
Most of all we are pleased to announce that we were able to raise $10,000 for Palmera which was then matched by one of our guests, who was inspired by Palmera’s work on the night! Local business owners of Centex Homes allowed our donations to reach $10,000 for this project!
