Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Become The Voice CIC (www.becomthevoice.org) is in Hebron, Palestine working with fifteen young women to empower them to become the voice that stands for women's rights in Palestine. Palestine is hugely challenged politically, economically and socially. A combination of issues born out of its conflict with Israel and the particularly patriarchal male dominated society creates a plethora of women's rights problems. Women face high levels of domestic violence, early and forced marriage, honour based violence and killing and are often barred from their inheritance. The girls have been working to raise awareness of said issues and push for legal change.
The girls have had social media training; workshops in different women's rights issues including, forced marriage, divorce, honour based violence, inheritance rights and abortion rights and have had support in creating mini social media campaigns on each topic. We now want to spend a month creating a large effective campaign. We want to deliver two sessions in how to campaign, a session in designing the campaign and then spend a day creating and filming their campaign.
