Tibra Capital Foundation and The Eve Project
The Eve Project opens catering kitchen with help from Tibra Capital Foundation
Lisa Brooke and Helen Dwyer are the co-founders behind The Eve Project which is a not for profit organisation that exists to offer a new alternative for women who live with trauma as a result of past abuse.
The two founders have been working on The Eve Project since late 2016.
With high statistics of abuse in Australia the two women believe we can all be part of the solution by bringing together a combination of therapeutic services, training, mentoring programs and supported work experience. The Eve Project’s aim is to provide pathways to help women reclaim their lives, thrive and work towards a sustainable future.
“It’s really our hearts desire to see an alternate future for women that live with trauma as a result of past abuse”.
The first stage of their initiative is Eve & Co, which is a social enterprise established by The EVE Project to support its aims by generating revenue and facilitating the supported work experience program offered to female survivors of abuse.
“The idea is to help them to get belief in themselves and empower them to be able to sustain themselves again and dream again.”
Their pop up food van has been seen at markets, events and catering jobs serving food which is best described as: Wholesome, locally produced, seasonally sourced, environmentally responsible and filled with love.
With the help of the Tibra Capital Foundation they are now on their second stage which is to open a catering kitchen, a multi purpose space where we will run dinners, cooking classes, sub lease space for other events and provide training.
And this new space is coming soon, starting early 2021. This means they are able to grow their program/s to support more women, they can grow their social enterprise with more business opportunities and start their support group for women that might not need the whole program but would benefit greatly from a place they can share and heal. Plus, they will be the only dedicated women’s service in the northern suburbs of the South Coast.
All this will help lead to their third stage which will be a healing centre, somewhere remote on a farm and offer alternate therapies as well as traditional.
It is a big project and we are so proud to be able to support Lisa and Helen as they continue to nourish lives and nurture change with their organisation.
