Annah Stretton RAWs into the Waikato


Annah Stretton RAWs into the Waikato


Today Fashion Designer, Entrepreneur and Philanthropist, Annah Stretton announced the launch of her new support program, Reclaiming Another Woman – RAW.
RAW provides a platform for capable and successful women to walk alongside a woman that is ready to try to exit Women’s Refuge and begin to re-build her life.

The service will be piloted in the Waikato beginning in February 2014.
“Through RAW, capable women - including myself - will set aside the time to offer a guiding hand, a trusted ear and a confidante,” Annah explains. “With this one-on-one support, from someone who will never judge but always listen and has certainly lived a very different life, I believe that these women can begin to identify new pathways forward and begin to explore a range of new options and hopefully ignite some very necessary self-belief.”

The mentor offers company and support and together, with the RAW program can endeavour to break what is an extremely vicious and destructive cycle within this country.

“I cannot and will not stand by while we as a Nation continue to undervalue women. I surround myself with some of the most capable women New Zealand has to offer through business and other organizations every day and I have made it my personal priority to ensure they respect and value themselves as I do… but I cannot be there for every woman in New Zealand.”

If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a RAW supportee contact rebecca@raw.org.nz
