MOHITO has joined forces with the Gerlsy Foundation to support women’s development. Together, we prepared a series of workshops on self-confidence, self-esteem and self-presentation. Profits from the sale of limited edition Gerlsy t-shirts will fund the Foundation’s future activities.
What values does the Foundation focus on?
Gerlsy is an initiative of three energetic, resourceful and close-knit women – Magdalena Lamparska, Jowita Radzińska and Olga Bołądź. As a Foundation, they implement projects aimed at creating a community whose representatives follow their own paths but at the same time benefit from common experiences and support each other. As the founders say:
The foundation of our initiatives is women’s solidarity and power of the group. We create a space where women can speak with their own voice.
What is the purpose of collaboration?
The joint actions of MOHITO and the Gerlsy Foundation are aimed at all women who want to change their lives – those who are brave and those who are looking for bravery; those who are ready to conquer the world and those who are just starting out.
What connects them? Awareness of themselves and their needs!
A series of free workshops led by Magda, Jowita and Olga were recorded for them. They invited experts from the world of business, psychology and culture to participate in spirited discussions. Together, they show how to actively boost self-esteem, deal with stress or create a personal image.
Subsequent episodes of the workshop will be published monthly on the YouTube platform on the MOHITO and Gerlsy Foundation channels. And right now, t shirts created in collaboration with the Foundation are available in retail stores and on mohito.com. MOHITO will transfer the profits from the sale of t-shirts for the Gerlsy Foundation’s statutory activities – building women’s communities and supporting their development.
