About me / About business or organisation:
I am 24 year old Law Graduate and currently work for Christian Aid as a Youth Volunteer Development Officer. I also run a Social Enterprise called Fashion 4 Change. Through this, I organise fashion fundraising events, which are a combination of swishing parties/fashion shows. My strap line is: where fashion changes more than your wardrobe: it changes lives. Money raised from these events is being used to build Practical Skills Centres in a number of developing countries where young adults can go and learn trades such as tailoring, jewellery making and bag making. We then provide them with loans and business advice so that they are then able to set up businesses and hence have a route out of poverty.
