It is a very great place for women to learn more about how productive they can be with a little push and lots to learn . It is indeed a great community for women of colour . Finally a great place that feels like home where you are listened to and helped in every aspects ! The recent workshops had been memorable ones for me as it resonate in me everyday that I can do what I envisage in terms of starting up with help with SAWN

Am so humbled to be part of Sawn, when I moved down to Manchester after having a baby, I was struggling in different areas of life, but after meeting Rose and different ladies with incredible experiences, I feel strengthened, supported and accepted. I wouldn’t have made it alone, so grateful for Rose and the team for the great support you provide to women especially single mums, May God richly bless u 🙏

When I came to Sawn, waves of life had battered me, Rose & team gave me a platform to cry on, to laugh on, to accept that its okay for things not to be okay, to be me without editing. Thank you for holding my wobbly hands to get on my feet again. I can now walk with my head above tide.
Thank you SAWN.
