Celebrating and Empowering Women Through a New Philanthropic Partnership

It’s with big smiles and great excitement that we announce our new philanthropic partnership with Momentum Media — one of Australia’s most influential media and professional development businesses.

 

This new partnership between Momentum and So They Can will launch with the Women in Finance Awards this September, before expanding into their other focused awards programs, such as the Women in Real Estate Awards and the Women in Law Awards.

 

Momentum is a leading market intelligence and information business for a range of sectors, including legal, professional and financial services, real estate, investment, retirement, wealth, aerospace, defence and national security. 

 

The Awards Series celebrates the outstanding achievements of women across the Australian financial services, real estate and legal industries. Momentum Media Director, Alex Whitlock said that he was looking forward to supporting So They Can and helping us raise awareness of our essential education and empowerment programs in East Africa. 

 

“The work that So They Can undertakes in the communities they support in Kenya and Tanzania has an enormous impact. Education is a legacy that can last for ever and can transform the lives of young people, and those around them, in very challenging circumstances. What particularly aligns So They Can with our awards programs for women is their dedication to empowering vulnerable young women, saving many from a life of hardship.” Alex explained.

 

We believe this new and exciting philanthropic partnership will help us raise better awareness of our work in Kenya and Tanzania, and enable us to connect directly with key professional audiences who have the power to help us strive towards our 2030 goal of changing the future for 36,000 children in Africa who, through no fault of their own, are living in poverty.

 

“A large focus of So They Can’s work is empowering women and girls through our education, child wellbeing, women’s empowerment and community health and support programs – so this partnership feels very aligned,” Cass said. 

 

Working together with Momentum, we will be able to substantially grow our impact and change the future of children and women living in poverty through education, channelling the African philosophy of Ubuntu.

 

“We’re proud to support So They Can and we look forward to seeing what can be achieved together in highlighting their cause among Momentum’s communities of empowered women in finance, real estate and law.” Alex said.
