‘There is so much power in what we are doing - creating a mass movement of women and girls globally who are fighting climate change through their everyday actions and decisions.’ Tara Hunt in 2015
'I want people fall in love with our planet so they act to protect it like their own child' Tara Hunt, in May 2017
ABOUT TARA HUNT & THE FELLOWSHIP
Tara Hunt was Co -CEO and a director of 1 Million Women. She was also a philanthropist. A special kind of philanthropist, a hands-on type who gave money but also gave of herself. We lost her beautiful soul to cancer on the 28th of May, 2017. Strong and passionate, Tara never stopped believing in the power of women to change the world. She worked tirelessly to mobilise everyone she could in the fight against climate change.
The Tara Hunt Fellowship is to honour Tara and to help others discover their connection and love for our earth. We started up the Tara Hunt Fellowship in her memory and our vision is it continues year after year.
Tara talked a lot about this fellowship before she passed away and it has been made possible through the generous donations from her friends, family and the 1 Million Women community.
#ImWalkingforTara We hope you will join us.
A million thanks to Tara's girlfriends Colleen and Genevieve for bringing this walk to life. Their vision is it becomes an annual walk in memory of our beautiful Tara and her love of this planet and a time to reflect on our relationship with Mother Earth.
Tara Hunt, 12 Oct 1962 - 28 May 2017
