"Hi there :)
We are a social enterprise with the purpose of empowering women and girls from the ethnic group of Vietnam, as the fact that they are still living in the gender-inequality environment where women still have to obey men and don't have any rights of their own.
What we do is that we will create a fashion business that builds a partnership with freelance designers and women from the Vietnamese ethnic groups to create more jobs, second of all our profit will be used to support girls to have access to education.
Our goals is to give back the voice to all women and girls and if you have the same vision, you are in the right place"

This weekend 150 farmworker women and domestic workers will be arriving in DC to share, learn, build and exercise their power. We will raise our voices so that no one in DC or anywhere else can say that we did not shout our needs and concerns, plus provide our recommendations on how to end workplace sexual violence and keep all workers safe. I want to give a special shoutout to our sisters @domesticworkers We are so fortunate to have you as our partners for justice. I am grateful to everyone who is working day in and day out to make this gathering the success that it is sure to be. #AllWorkSafeWork will no longer be aspirational bc we are going to do all that we can to make safe and dignified work a reality for everyone. #Sisters#CollectivePower#Changemakers#SAAM18

I have started this page as motivation for myself - to change! My life is like many others. Busy and chaotic! I am mum of 2 beautiful girls, who also suffers from anxiety, PND and currently glandular fever and CMV. I have decided I need to take action and make myself a priority! I am going to help not only myself but my family, my happiness, my work life balance, my girls, but I also really wanted to also show others that it's manageable without spending a fortune or making seperate dinners etx. I am going to be focused on foods, supplements, exercise, family time and finding the right balance for me. If I make this public - I am hoping it will give me the extra push I need! So welcome to day 1 of my 2018 🌸
We are so excited to be a part of @ucla Women's Week. We will be on campus on Monday 4/23 at SAC Picnic Tables from 12P-2P. Come assemble a care package for someone in need! We will have everything for you.
I’m working with about 60 high school seniors at Ingraham today and wrapping up week one of three in a social justice theatre residency centered on identity, voice, and impact.
Today we talked about guns, and police, and schools, and race, and power, and change. It was hard and illuminating and frustrating and inspiring and good.
19 years ago today I sat on a school bus headed home from my own high school and listened to the radio reports coming in from Littleton, CO and cried and was very scared.
8 years ago I had just finished making a play about Columbine with a bunch of beautiful and brave high school students who are a bit more grown now, and changing the world.
I am feeling old today. And lucky, and tired, a little sad and a little tender, and focused and maybe more than a little hopeful too.
AHHHHHH!! I did it 😀💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻 Back in January I started this 80 day workout program. yes, I haven’t sticked 100% to the nutrition plan and yes I haven’t worked out every day and I’ve skipped some days/weeks because of family situation or my own personally issues ! But I just started phase 3 of this program (still a little bit to go) and today I pushed my self to use 20s which I HAVE NEVER been able to do before😱I’m so glad I challenged myself to do this program and even start my own at home business! I’m taking control of my life and making changes for my self and setting my self up for success🤗 and I’m so happy I get to help others along the way😍 #weights#80days#80dayobsession#changemakers
One of students, who is very much a reluctant reader, came up to me this and said, “Ms. Mundt, I like this book. Do you know why?”
“What about the people?”
“Their skin color. And they speak the same language as me, like the language we speak at home.
It struck me that this student has rarely, if ever, seen her home culture reflected in her books. I can’t help but wonder how much this has contributed to her apparent dislike of reading.
As much as I try to fill my classroom with books representing a large range of ethnicities, cultures, and languages (this is truly one of my passions and primary goals as a teacher), she had still never come across a book like this one.
Most of the available books depicting people of color are stories of slavery or civil rights. It FAR is less common to find books depicting people of color living their everyday lives. It is even MORE rare to find graphic novels (the most popular text format in my classroom) depicting people of color living their everyday lives. They might be supporting characters but are rarely the lead characters.
I also wonder how many characters of color have been “whitewashed” in books in effort to make the stories appeal more to non-white consumers. This enrages me. This is why we need authors and illustrators of color.
Students need both windows and mirrors in literature. This student certainly has access to many windows but tragically, very few windows. I wonder how many other students of color this is true for. It is a true injustice.
Let me know your thoughts on this in the comments below, and please share any recommendations! As a white educator, I don’t purport to know everything (or even much at all) about this issue. But I have noticed a problem and I do feel like reflection and change is needed.
"We are not a perfect, but there is gold to be mined, passion to be channeled, and wild dreams to exhort in millennials. It's time to take advantage of this reality and run hard after the lost – no turning back. Millennials were made for missions. It's time to embrace it." - @valerie_schuett 's blog on the millennial generation. I'll let this little blurb speak for itself. You'll want to give it a read. Link in bio.
ONE OUTFIT. ONE VISION. FIVE DAYS. 👗
#repost from the IG story of one of our New Members, Charlotte--one of many that successfully completed the #LBDI this week. You all rock!
We are so grateful for all of the amazing women in our New Member Class who organized this campaign and are incredibly proud to serve alongside you as the #JLC continues to make strides in improving the #GreaterCincinnati community. 🎈
Wearing the same outfit for 5 consecutive days is no easy feat and we applaud you for your bold dedication to sparking awareness and meaningful conversation around the staggeringly high rate poverty in our city. Thanks for going outside of your comfort zone to shed light on how one can be impacted by the effects of poverty by ”walking a mile in someone else’s shoes”--or lack there of. You exemplified the mission and values of the JLC to the fullest extent. 💗
The ”outfit” component may be over today, but the initiative does not stop here!
Please join the JLC in continuing to spread awareness and support to end the cycle of poverty in Cincinnati. Let's keep this conversation going!
Members, harness the power of social media by sharing your experiences of wearing the same outfit for a week in the comments below, or on other channels using #CincyLBDI .
Our sincerest gratitude to everyone who participated in this initiative, and to those who will continue to spread the word!
“The mustard-yellow ladybug with multiple black spots made a difference in my life. It brought me hope, peace, promise, and possibility!”
Quote from my book ‘Permanent Happiness’-the ‘My Transformation’ chapter.
Yellow=the color of hope, joy, warmth, sunshine and happiness.
Hope to see you, Atlanta friends at my book signing and reading event tomorrow, April 21st at Bookmiser store in Roswell at 6pm. 4651 Sandy Plains rd, Roswell.

On Wednesday evening we celebrated our hardworking team of internal volunteers, board members, committee members, and Team Leaders. Négociant Winery/Grinds & Vine Coffee Bar kindly hosted us. We had a design your own clipboard station and were able to recognize a few of our amazing volunteers that make our mission a reality.
We celebrated this amazing planet 🌎
Read about Kate Sessions and wrote about things that they could do to help change the world . Spent most of our day outside and got to see all these kiddos work as a team in the garden #seedsofhope#littlegardeners#changemakers
Starting tomorrow, Seeds of Africa will be hosting a very special Instagram takeover from up-and-coming Ethiopian artist @dan_abd85. Check out this awesome video he made, and be sure to stay tuned for more of his images over the next few days.
Наши шейперы во главе @yokasun и @zhemeney_amina провели урок по экологии в школе Alliance School, где участвовали 25 учеников 2 и 3 классов. С учениками был проведен урок об окружающей среде, почему и как нужно следить за чистотой окружающего нас мира. Ученики активно участвовали в дискуссии и делились своими знаниями.
Основной частью урока была посадка зерен бобовых с целью показать, что если ухаживать и заботиться можно подарить жизнь маленькому зернышку и это довольно таки трудоемкий и сложный процесс. Разрушать легко и создать сложно, можно сказать был слоганом открытого урока. Уже совсем скоро, надеемся будет возможно увидеть результат труда детишек. #globalshapers#globalshapersalmaty#gsaprojects#ecologicalfriendly#changemakers#ngo
Incredibly proud of our Moeloco youth ambassador and intern @rishabh_jain20 who showed great leadership and team work participating in the @genentrepreneur Ignite hackathon. Ten schools attended and their teams pitched business ideas to a panel of judges. Incredibly inspiring to see these high school students in action.
Another wonder day in the world of the DM!! This leader is speaking about the Board of Director training she took over in Nonprofit School!! If you have not taken a look at all of of the current trainings over there, I don’t know what you are waiting for. Check it out at: https://nonprofit-school.teachable.com
This is exactly why I made a statement to Gorman the other day. When you don't represent different body types that is a statement in itself. It's saying they aren't worthy of representing your brand, they aren't worthy of being seen, they aren't worthy of advertising your clothes. We are all looking to see the world accepts us and sees value in who we are and by these big brands blindly following the idea that only size 6, 175cm women can be used in their advertising they are feeding this insidious idea that only certain bodies are ok. It's time for people to take a stand and realise how powerful their actions are at forming an unhealthy narrative for the women, men and children of this world.
P.S. If you want to see what breaking the mould looks like in the fashion industry, check out @hayleyelsaesser. I couldn't love this woman more, she uses different bodies to share her clothes and it's so powerful xxx
It’s day six of our 7 Days of Self Care and today we’re going to take the time to write a love-filled letter to ourselves 🧡
This may feel unusual or uncomfortable - lots of us have so many negative messages in our subconscious, our inner critic if you like. Be willing to open up to new ways of thinking. Choose thoughts and feelings that make you feel good, because you have the power to make yourself happy. Love and appreciate the fact that you are who you are. Whenever you feel yourself veering off the path, acknowledge and even say out loud 'This is old stuff coming to the surface. I'm decluttering, I'm clearing it, and I am safe. I am willing to change. I am willing to learn to love myself.' Keep this near you so you can see it regularly. While you may not realise this now, you are worth loving and every step of this is worth changing up your life.
Write a letter to yourself today as though you are telling someone you love how incredible they are... List your special qualities, features and things that make you uniquely you... Make this a letter that has you fall in love with you and your humanity!
Every time a negative thought comes your way, say ‘Thank you, and you no longer serve me.’ Choose love instead, and write from that space 🧡
I am beautiful... caring... intelligent... strong... patient... kind... I'm getting better at being patient and kind with myself... I am willing to see life in a new and different way... I’m enjoying the opportunity to dwell in a world of love and acceptance... I surround myself with positive uplifting people... It's getting easier and easier to ask for help when I need it... I am willing to grow and change... I love how I am always feeling safe and secure... I feel deeply loved by others... I deeply love myself.
Keep going... what else can you add to this?
He rōpū o rangatahi mīharo! He kaitiaki taiao ēnei! Kei te tino whakaohoho rātou 🙌🏽🌿🐸🍃🦇
This bunch of awesome young people at the NZ Association for Environmental Education Conference this week are so inspiring. They’re the change makers of tomorrow and these guardians of nature want a better future for all of us! Kia kaha e hoa mā!
Massive thanks to @genzeronz @jamesshawmp @unesco @forestandbird @wgtncc @wwf NZ @visit_zealandia for all your support working with this great group over the last few days!
This is SO cool! @mindyourmind.ca, one of the AMAZING teams working out of Innovation Works, has taken their work cross country and are off in Squamish BC to learn from and with the wonderful young people out west! They’re asking BC youth “what do YOU need to be mentally healthy?”. Can’t wait to hear all about your adventures friends! #changemakers#impact#youth#mentalhealth
Celebrate #EarthDay this weekend with the Climate Museum! On Sat. 4/21, participate in our photo activity at DOT’s #CarFreeEarthDay in Herald Square. On Sun. 4/22, build your own renewable energy snap circuit at @AMNH ’s #EarthFest . Both days we’ll be raffling off Climate Museum tote bags! We hope to see you there.
Old habits die hard... I’ve been trying not to use paper towel and use the air dryers at school instead, but every once in a while I just wave my hand in front of the machine without thinking. I could just leave it there for the next person, which I do sometimes, but today I didn’t even think until I ripped it off! My next step is to take it home and put it in my compost instead of putting it in the garbage at work.
On Wednesday, we held a systemic change workshop and information session about the 2018 Challenge at @uniwageningen.
The winners of the workshop (Rene, Max, Laurens, Jacintha, Dagmar, Joris and Yannick) will get the incredible opportunity of being part of the Challenge in October. They will help guide our 90 international young professionals on the second day of our programme at a similar workshop.
Will you be one of the changemakers joining them? 💚
