This card by Carla McCrae will make real change for women in Asia Pacific.
It can support a group of young women in Timor-Leste to develop their leadership skills, confidence and knowledge. These young women are change makers and leaders of tomorrow, helping Timor-Leste to overcome major challenges including inequality, poverty and illiteracy.
In Timor-Leste, Women have fewer job opportunities education and employment, are paid less for their work, and less likely to be in leadership roles.

They currently have a huge focus on getting rural women elected to positions of leadership, and empower women to run for elections through their training in public speaking, campaigning and advocating.
About the artist
Carla McRae is a Melbourne-based illustrator. Carla’s drawings pull together a blank space with crisp lines, geometric shapes, strong colour and characters. Wielding a pencil, marker or paint brush at any time, her background in design has informed her preference for clean, simplistic image-making.
“This woman is powerful and in control. She’s creating her own opportunities, building her own world and, in turn, defining her place within it. I wanted to create an image that is positive, inspiring and, most importantly, shows a woman who has been given the tools to empower herself and is doing so with confidence” – Carla McRae
