My today's guest is Leah Chikamba, founder and CEO of the charity Angels of Hope for Women. Leah’s story is a wonderful example of how something that starts as one small act of kindness can grow into a community joining forces to make the world we live in a better and, most importantly, a more empathetic place. Angels of Hope for Women is providing an outreach service and working with women and girls who have experienced domestic abuse and other harmful practices. Most of these women are asylum seekers and refugees living in accommodated shelter.
We speak about Leah’s own personal journey, how she started helping out women from minority backgrounds in the UK and how this attracted more volunteers eventually growing into the charity Angels of Hope for Women. Leah also shares some of her own learnings in the process, some of the biggest challenges women can experience and how the right support, education and empowerment can create an unbelievable difference.
