The Food Bridge vzw in collaboration with Gemeente Elsene, FAAB vzw, O'Marche, Single Mothers' Hope Foundation Uganda and with the support of CIME-Skincare, is organizing a Glam up for female farmers event in Brussels.

Event Background:

Many of the products used in the cosmetics industry, are produced from raw materials grown by female farmers. Yet many of the women who work in farms or affiliated sectors especially in the developing world, will never have access to these products or an opportunity to use them.
So we want to engage the global sisterhood who have the opportunity and access to these products, just for a day to glam up for a female farmer. Funds raised at this event will be used to support female farmers organizations and agro food entrepreneurs.

Content:
Our expert volunteers from the cosmetic and fashion industry will have different stands where they will give make-up or hair make over and advice to participants.
After each makeover, the participant will then be photographed and she will have the picture as a souvenir. If a participant wants more copies or a bigger size of the picture, she will have to pay extra for this.

Target:
This event is open to women of all races and background especially
Women who want to makeup but don’t know how to
women who never have time for makeup
women who used to makeup but have lost some of the skills
women looking for a change to their makeup routine
women who can’t be seen without their makeup but will support a worthy cause
women who don’t see the point of makeup but will try it out for a good cause or just for fun
So in essence, all women

Each participant will pay a registration fee of 28€ (The Food Bridge BE 33 0017 5988 5346 with communication : glamup Brussels ) , which entitles her to a makeover and a photograph.
