Why fundraise for LAWA?

Latin American Women’s Aid is a completely independent charity that relies on the generosity of our organisational and individual supporters to continue turning our vision into reality.

“LAWA has made a huge difference to my life. I was taken out of the streets thanks to you. From being homeless and distressed, I am now happy and live with dignity because of what you did for me.” – Service User

If you would like to do more than donate, here are some ideas for ways you and your family, friends or co-workers can help raise awareness and vital funds for our organisation.

be a crowdfunding ambassador

Since 2016, LAWA is a superstar partner of the GlobalGiving platform, which allows small and independent charities like us to create crowdfunding projects. This has proved to be an amazing tool to support our work!

We want to join forces with passionate and inspiring people that know how important it is to give back to the community. Together we can make sure that women and children thrive and become change makers for generations to come. You can be an essential part of this community not only by donating to our current project but also by creating your very own crowdfunding page!

The process is simple, as GlobalGiving provides everything: visit our crowdfunding page, scroll down and find the button “Start a Fundraiser” (or simply click here). That’s it! Fill the required information and join us in our crowdfunding journey!

Other ways you can help: share our campaign on social media, use our banners on your blog, talk to your friends and family. If you have any questions, do get in touch: send an email to salma@lawadv.org.uk, we are going to love to hear from you.
