STYLE FOR LIFE is an ELEVEN AUSTRALIA and HAGAR initiative. Hair salons give up their time on the last Sunday of July and donate the proceeds to Hagar. The money raised provide survivors of human rights abuse the opportunity to learn a skill, like hairdressing, giving them purpose and helping restore their lives.
What is Hagar
HAGAR is an international organisation that works to restore the lives of women and children who have survived severe human rights abuse including slavery, human trafficking and domestic violence. Hagar works in Cambodia, Afghanistan and Vietnam and provides specialist trauma counselling, intensive education programs and career training opportunities for people who would otherwise have no chance for the future. For more information visit www.hagar.org.au.
In 2016, Style For Life raised over $43,335 in an effort to help end slavery. So far, ELEVEN Australia has raised $161,000 for Hagar, sponsoring countless women through Hagar's Economic Empowerment Program.
