50 Women’s Projects

The 50 Women Project is the umbrella name for two unique benevolent ventures: the book “50 Women” and the 50 Women Foundation.

“50 Women” is a book collection of stories told by women from different countries around the world.  The 50 Women Foundation is a project based non-profit organization which seeks to assist other international aid organizations on projects concerning international women’s issues. For more information about the 50 Women Project, please visit http://www.50womenproject.org/

If you are a woman, or concerned about women’s issues, you can help in any way you feel inspired to do so:

  • Read the stories of the women who were courageous to share their stories with the world to inspire other women.

  • Spread the word about this project and share the stories with other women who might need such an inspiration.

  • Contribute Your Story if you feel that it might inspire other women around the world.

Dream Panorama is a road trip project to explore peoples’ dreams and how they realize them. During the journey, we will interview, photograph and film real people around the world who have dreams or have achieved their dreams. We are getting the stories of their dreams out to the world by our website, social media, local or national TV channels and at the end, a documentary film. Ten years after the trip, we will come back to the interviewees to see how their dreams have impacted their lives.

The items needed are as follows:

  • Glass jars and bottles with their cover (no containers without cover; no plastic; and no alcoholic containers please);

  • All kind of textile, wires, and wool; 

  • Crafts and sewing supplies. 

The BANK OF JARS is located at the main office of the Ministry of Labour (MoL), near Cozmo (7th circle). You can deposit the material at the MoL, and the local women will pick up what they need for their activities. This way, they can increase the number of items and better satisfy the needs.
