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

Gaza.Scoop: UNRWA School, Ambulances Attacked - Gaza MOH

Gordon Campbell:
On Gaza And Burning The Israeli Flag

One of the selling points in New Zealand’s campaign for a temporary seat on the Security Council is that we have a pluckily independent voice to offer on international conflicts.

This image is not entirely self-delusional. When we did occupy a temporary UN Security Council seat in the 1990s, New Zealand was forthright about the need for the international community to actively respond to the Rwanda genocide. On April 14, 1994, New Zealand, Nigeria and the Czech Republic were the only nations to call for a forceful UN intervention to halt the killings. It was a proud moment in the diplomatic record of the Bolger government.

What then, is the current National government doing with respect to the slaughter in Gaza? More>>
