“A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform.” Diane Mariechild
Talented young artist in Ghana
A few years ago, I was invited by a local Women's organization, Network of Women in Growth, to travel to Ghana, West Africa to teach Make-Up artistry and Natural Skin Care product-making to a group of 25 underemployed women.
The experience was life-changing. The women that I worked with were immediately enabled to use their new skills, over a short 14 day period the women went to work in their communities and started to earn an income.
We are global
Working within marginalized communities emPowered by Beauty will teach makeup artistry skills and skincare product making. Contact us for program availability.
