Women's day is a reminder of a cause that we should support every day. As women, we play an important role in raising awareness, challenge and take action to represent women.

Small tips to celebrate us, women:

It's the perfect time to acknowledge and show appreciation to the women out there. We can start with the women very close to our hearts, even a simple appreciation text will do. In a social media context, we can show our support by simply following inspirational women, engage with their content and provide feedback. In a business context, we can support female-owned businesses. In general, we can also show our support to any cause that is dedicated to women.

At Jos The Artisan, we wanted to celebrate this occasion by raising awareness on a local non-profit organisation, FIDEM Charity Foundation.

What is FIDEM Charity Foundation?

“The FIDEM Charity Foundation is a non-profit organisation providing support and empowerment opportunities to vulnerable women, adolescent girls and children through access to education, arts and culture and wellbeing guidance.” They strongly believe in the fundamental right to education for all, with a goal to empower and provide the opportunities and tools needed to increase their confidence and access life-changing learning opportunities!

This foundation is also represented by Anthea Zammit, Miss Universe Malta 2020. This cause is very close to her heart and she encourages us to show our support.
