Women's Groups 2013 - Kinwomen

Kinwomen

Purpose of the group

Kinwomen is a network, not an organisation or a business, just a gathering of women who want to do life well and be able to claim honestly, ‘no regrets’. The network is women only – bringing together women of all ages, cultures, education, abilities and passions to share life and wisdom.

Inspiration – discussion, events, on line resources. Stories – everyone has a story to tell and every story contains challenge, teaching and a need for empathy (putting ourselves in the other person’s shoes). Contribution – presenting opportunities to live beyond ourselves (giving finances, local and overseas volunteering, sharing skills with others).

At Kinwomen, we believe that women everywhere long for purpose, connection and conversation. They want to share their lives on a basis of honesty and vulnerability but this only happens when there is mutuality between people in the sharing of self, failures and dreams.

It is mostly an online network, providing a positive voice in the midst of a communication medium that can be essentially quite negative.

Kinwomen was founded in Perth, Western Australia. Is read and distributed globally.

Time period

Kinwomen began in December 2012 and is ongoing.

Key achievements

In August 2013, Kinwomen ran an event called 'The secret Garden House concert', where 450 groups were sponsored in Rwanda, to start small businesses for women in poverty in this nation.

Kinwomen has over 1200 participants on Facebook, 350 followers on Instagram, with thousands reading the blog, that is written by 7 different women, different ages, cultures and backgrounds.

The three founders of this network are on radio daily, with short inspiration grabs, encouraging women who are listening. Each month has a different theme pertaining to women's issues.
