20 Men Volunteers Turn Cooks as Part of Appreciation to Women Beneficiaries and Awardees at Daughters of Tomorrow’s “Empowered Women, Great Moms Dinner Celebration

Twenty men will spend an afternoon standing together in a small kitchen to prepare a special dinner for underprivileged kids whose mothers are beneficiaries of Daughters of Tomorrow (DOT), a young local charity (please find fact sheet attached).

DOT is organising the “Empowered Women, Great Moms Dinner Celebration” to honour the successes and friendships of the women who have been on a journey with DOT since early 2015. In addition, the evening will also recognize graduates of its Confidence Curriculum programme.

DOT’s Confidence Curriculum is a series of workshops consisting of personal discovery, soft skills and communications, coaching and professional development modules designed to help women rediscover their talents and strengths while opening their minds to new and greater possibilities in life.

In all, four awards will be presented to women whom DOT has deemed as good role models with the progress and perseverance they have shown over the past year. In addition, DOT will be honoring key volunteers, as well as facilitating informal networking and dialogue between their beneficiaries and employer partners during dinner to help them understand each other better.
