Amor Founder, Gayla Congdon, created Women of Strength for women from all around the world to come together and build a home alongside a family in South Africa. Not only is a complete home built, but culture is shared through cooking, beading, and dancing. The history of Apartheid in South Africa is taught by those who experienced it. Ultimately, we show that when women come together and serve together, everyone is stronger.
