Our June Community Champion is Alo Enlightened Women. Alo is a Bengali word meaning to light, or to give hope. Alo is focused on lowering barriers that culturally and linguistically diverse women face in Australia.
Alo is focused on the areas of women’s leadership, financial inclusion of women, women in tech, and violence against women and girls. The organisation aims to raise awareness of these issues by providing opportunities for engagement on personal growth, career development through facilitating training, workshops and seminars. They have videos and toolkits designed to build capacity in financial literacy, as well as ‘HerHealth’ informational programs, which are all available to access on their website.
If you’re interested in getting involved, check out their Facebook page. They have a project on road safety coming up that teaches basic skills around changing tyres and maintaining vehicles. If you’re keen, get in touch.
