RAW Ambition

From Nine To Noon, 11:28 am on 21 October 2015

Through her charity RAW - Reclaim Another Woman the fashion designer Annah Stretton is helping women offenders, some in prison, some on probation, to help them make a better life for themselves, through supported living. In March 2015 RAW opened its first 'incubation house' in the Waikato - far removed from distractions. Today RAW has two 'incubators' operating with four women in each. All of the women are in study or employment. It was for this scheme and - another RAW initiative, which matches mentors with women who have been victims of domestic violence - that Annah Stretton has been awarded the ASB Social Entrepreneur of the Year
