This Virtual Summit will provide you with the Hope You Need

during this time of crisis.

In times of crisis women turn to their mums, family, friends and experts.  They are seeking the information that they need to not only survive but to thrive at this time.  But most of all they are seeking the hope that they need to provide strength to take care of their own families and themselves at this time.

So we assembled a team of  14 different speakers on 18 different topics, who will provide you with that hope during this time of crisis.

The topics they cover include Home Schooling, Mentoring, Soul Care, Peace, Domestic Violence, Cooking, Exercise, Mental Health, Communication, Vision, Linked-in, Grief, Loneliness and resetting your mindset.

You will be challenged, equipped, inspired and uplifted as you work through the various topics.

Plus when you purchase the course $10 from every sale goes towards Dare Domestic Violence support and The Aquila Fund - training women in how to establish their own business and begin the journey to financial freedom through entrepreneurship.

Not only will you receive hope. You will be equiped with key resources to provide that hope to others. Plus as a bonus helping some of the most vulnerable at this time.

Don't delay.  Hope is available for you now.

These women's insights are very insightful.  They are not "big names" but are women who have hope in their specific area of expertise and have a heart and passion to share that hope with you.

There is nothing to lose.  We have a guarantee for you.  That if "Women Providing Hope" does not provide you with hope in this current environment, we will gladly refund your investment no questions asked!

Hear are the incredible women who will provide you with hope
