Girls and women – everywhere but even more in Africa – face great challenges every day. Girls are less likely to be in school, less likely to have the same revenue creation opportunities when they grow up and definitely less likely to have a say in their own life. We want to help them carry on their unique heritage while giving them access to education and creating sustainable income stream for their family and community.
We need to mobilize all the resources available to make that vision happen.
We are very proud to partner with the ONE campaign and the JIMMY NELSON FOUNDATION. These organizations are having an incredible impact on the ground – supporting women through prevention, counselling, nutrition, and most of all education.
Our collaborators and partners all share in our vision to empower women and girls by organizing, mobilizing, educating, advocating and giving financial support.
The Wild Rabbit House believes in giving back. To show our commitment to these great causes, we will give back 2% of our total sales.
ONE is a campaigning and advocacy organization of more than 8 million people around the world taking action to end extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa.
ONE’s 8 million members are critical to this work. They come from every walk of life and from across the political spectrum. They’re artists and activists, faith and business leaders, students and scientists. They take action day in, day out so that people will have the chance not just to survive, but to thrive.
ONE is not a grant-making organization and we do not solicit funding from the public or receive government funds. ONE is funded almost entirely by foundations, individual philanthropists and corporations
JIMMY NELSON FOUNDATION
The Jimmy Nelson Foundation’s mission is to raise awareness on the way globalization affects our cultural heritage. The foundation engages in fostering an appreciation for cultural diversity and aims to do so by connecting people from different cultures and bolster learning from each others’ shared knowledge.
Jimmy Nelson has actively gone out to represent the indigenous cultures of the world on film. But with every new journey he undertakes, Jimmy Nelson is finding it harder to discover cultures that are not at risk by the homogenizing forces of a globalizing world. Mankind is at the risk of losing its cultural diversity. With the steady demise of different cultures, the world’s diversity is diminishing and it becomes increasingly difficult to learn from each others’ differences.
Jimmy Nelson has established the foundation to highlight the wealth of having a world with diverse cultural heritage. Why is this important to him? UNESCO director Irina Bokova calls cultural diversity “the promise of renewal and dynamism, and an engine of innovation and development.” The traditional knowledge of indigenous societies can contribute to the planet’s modern vision on technology, science and medicine. Indigenous societies also provide outstanding examples of sustainable living.
