About

The Heart of a Woman Project (THOAW) was founded by Andrea Rees, a professional photographer based in Toronto, Canada. THOAW partners with non-profit organizations that focus on women’s empowerment, skills development and poverty alleviation.

It aims is to empower women to have a voice, access to the Internet, a creative outlet and an opportunity to generate income through the sales of photographic art products or photo-based campaigns.

Programs:

- storytelling/journalism through mobile photography
- digital literacy (Internet access and social media)
- income generation

We are a small grassroots initiative that relies on volunteers and donations to keep the project moving forward. Pooled Aeroplan miles will be of tremendous help to:

- Visit the project in South Africa for on-going training and support
- Foster cultural exchange by bringing some of our participants in Khayelitsha (Cape Town, South Africa) to Canada
- Send skilled volunteers to our project(s)
- Launch new projects in Canada & abroad

Thank you for your support.
