LAFF 2017 Official Charity Partner Announced
London Asian Film Festival are proud to announce theofficial charity partner for the 2017 festival – The Asian Circle
The 19th London Asian Film Festival will be working with The Asian Circle as our official charity partner this year to raise awareness and funds in order to support vulnerable women in South Asia.
The UK based charity is run by successful British Asian women from diverse backgrounds and supports projects in partnership with Oxfam. Its goal is to transform the lives of women and girls in South Asia by connecting passionate women in the UK volunteering their support, skills and resources to make a difference. Given the right resources, these vulnerable women hold the key to overcoming poverty and can help change happen for themselves.
The charity is an integral part of ‘The Circle’ founded by the singer and philanthropist Annie Lennox. This is a network of like-minded women, working to respond to the challenges of vulnerable women and girls worldwide.
