Every year thousands of events are held throughout the world to inspire women and celebrate achievements on 8 March – International Women’s Day. 
‘Inspiring Change’ is this year’s theme encouraging advocacy for women’s advancement everywhere in every way. It calls for challenging the status quo for women’s equality and vigilance inspiring positive change.
ShelterBox has always encouraged women in communities affected by disaster to be involved in tent training and decision-making processes. In this video, ShelterBox Response Team volunteer Rachel Harvey speaks more about this from the Philippines when she was part of a team responding to the recent devastating Typhoon Haiyan.

ShelterBox will continue to support brave women who have been forced from their homes through disaster or humanitarian crisis, like Syrian refugee Ahed who is living in a ShelterBox tent in Lebanon. Their strength is always inspiring.

As always, thank you for supporting ShelterBox.
