Bravia recognizes a commitment to furthering the education and the empowerment of women around the world. Our most recent venture has been in association with “The Warrior Queen Project,” as we continue to try and illuminate the voices of AAPI (Asian American Pacific Islander) women worldwide. Other recent activities include a participatory effort with “The Lotus Circle”, in which organizations work together across eighteen Asian countries to provide women and girls with the tools they need to change their lives, their communities, and society at large.
Inspired by the Hollywood biopic of the legendary Warrior Queen of Jhansi comes a movement to unleash the Warrior Queen in all Asian and Pacific Islander women and girls.
The Warrior Queen Project tells the true stories of AAPI Warrior Queens past and present. By celebrating how we display Warrior Queen values in our modern lives, we empower each other to create the change necessary for a more inclusive and equitable society. Our use of “women” is open, expansive, and trans-inclusive.
We inspire Asian and Pacific Islander women and girls to embolden the fierce Warrior Queen within themselves.
Bravia Capital has contributed substantially to enable Lotus Circle (affiliated with The Asia Foundation in New York City) in raising funding for girls’ education in Afghanistan. Major improvements were made to two schools in Kabul, which had been severely damaged by years of conflict. These include roof repairs, refurbishing classrooms, and renovating a conference hall used by the community at large. Together these schools provided education to over 6,000 Afghan girls.
The Lotus Circle also launched a vocational training program in Can Tho, Viet Nam, for disadvantaged women and those at risk of trafficking and exploitation.
