The Women to Women event is a fundraiser to raise awareness and funds to support women and girls affected by HIV/AIDS in Guelph and Lesotho, Africa.

According to the United Nations, Lesotho has the highest rape rate in the world.  

One study in Lesotho found that 61 percent of women reported having experienced sexual violence at some point in their lives.

Last year we had over one hundred women attend the event.

This year, our goal is to raise $20,000 to provide education, health and wellness, safety, a stable home, emotional support and a brighter future for the women and girls of Lesotho.

Bracelet of Hope is a grassroots; Guelph-based charity founded in 2005, and is committed to ending the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Lesotho.

Our vision, to see one African country AIDS free, is supported through three pillars - health, homes and jobs, and collaborative engagement with the people of Lesotho.
