Our People

It takes a village to get a project like One World Women off the ground - here is our wonderful team that all give their time, energy and expertise to turn our vision into a reality.

Founder and Project Director - Cath Harris

Cath’s broad experience in operational management, overseas logistics, people management and creative marketing combined with her passion to help women have culminated in this passion-project. By taking a fresh approach to leading a non-profit NGO, Cath’s hope is to tackle challenges and uncover needs by enabling individuals to work ‘on the ground’, rather than age-old charitable models and bureaucracy restricting help where it is needed the most.
