The Future is Female


Hi, my name is Ellen, owner and sole proprietor of Vintalier. I am starting this page to share with you the list of non-profit organizations I have come to admire whose missions I agree with full-heartedly. They are primarily women-focused programs even though I also care deeply about the environment and other social issues. But compiling this list has been a personal revelation and exploration into which issues I care about most. I encourage you to watch the videos and explore the links because I think they could be just as fun and heartwarming for you as they were for me.

Women’s Media Center
"Media shapes us, informs our ideas, policies and politics. It tells us who we are, and what we can be. WMC works toward media equality using interconnected strategies of research, original stories and articles, promotion of women experts and media training."

How I first heard of it:
Thanks to Gloria Steinem’s website. As a woman who has worked in media, I believe it’s important for women to be equally employed and represented in the media and communications industries.

No Means No
"Mission: To create a rape-free world. No Means No trains instructors in high risk environments to deliver their rape prevention curriculum to girls and boys ages 10-20 in schools and clubs."

How I first heard of it:
A video from my Facebook feed showed both boys and girls being taught to respect women (for themselves and others) at an early age to prevent the culture of rape. So obvious, yet so brilliant!

 

Shanti Bhavan
"Shanti Bhavan empowers children from India’s lowest socioeconomic class to break the cycle of generational poverty through education, leadership, and compassion."

How I first heard of it:
Through the Netflix documentary “Daughters of Destiny”. It documents the journey of five young girls (of many children) chosen by Shanti Bhavan to receive free education and be trained to return to their communities to break the cycle of poverty. These girls humbly represent the power of the next generation.

A21
"Slavery ends here. Together, we are eradicating human trafficking through awareness, intervention, and aftercare. Our legacy is freedom."

How I first heard of it:
Through our newest supplier Apse Jewelry. It’s hard to believe but human trafficking still exists in the U.S. and is one of the most manipulative, violent, and evil trades to exist. We have to end this.

 

The question “How can I make a difference?” often pops into our heads. But I’ve come to realize that it’s like going to the gym. At some point, we have to stop ourselves from making excuses and start exercising our “humanity”. Where can you begin? Begin anywhere!
