"African Pride in the Park" Fundraiser Event

On Sunday June 7th, 2009, Little Travellers Korea will be hosting "African Pride in the Park" a fundraising event to promote African culture and raise money for the Hillcrest AIDS Center in South Africa. Over 100 women from the KwaZulu-Natal Province of South Africa make beautifully cute beaded doll pins and cellphone charms that are sold all over the world. Little Travellers Korea has been in operation for over a year and a half and has already raised over twenty million won for the center, who's mission is to provide "unconditional love to all those infected or affected by HIV/AIDS in a practical way". The money these pins generate makes an enormous difference as it enables women to feed and educate their families in one of the most HIV infected places on this planet.
 
On June 7th you will enjoy different examples of African culture starting with drumming and continuing with an African dance workshop, come and partake in the fun! If dancing isn't for you design your own Batik t-shirt or fabric. There will be a Batik dye workshop in the park where you can use the batik dyes to create your own funky African t-shirt. We will also be making African beaded necklaces that you can design and take home with you! Other performances and workshops include, belly dancing and yoga. So come on out to the Hongdae Park (line 2 Hongik University), enjoy the music, get interactive and support Little Travellers and all the wonderful work they do. The event kicks off at 1pm and continues until 6pm, with each hour marking a different performance and activity. HIV/AIDS is a devastating illness in Africa and around the world and we need to learn to protect ourselves and support each other.

International Women's Day                       March 8, 2009

Every year since the early 1900’s the International Women’s Day has been celebrated globally on March 8th in acknowledgment of womens' political, social and economic achievements as well as to raise awareness of the struggles of women worldwide. In Seoul a special event was organized by the Korean Women’s Associations United at Chunggye Plaza near City Hall themed “Women and Men United to End Violence against Women and Girls”. The event gave visitors the opportunity to stroll around the picturesque plaza and receive information about various women’s groups and NGOs in Seoul. Among these the Little Travellers found their place and attracted much interest and attention of hundreds of visitors and spectators on this beautiful sunny afternoon.

An hour into the event a commemorative ceremony was held, featuring a Taekwondo demonstration with subsequent self-defense instructions for women and girls, and musical acts and percussion performances in which the good-humored audience enthusiastically joined in. Next a parade was conducted which led it’s procession via the National Human rights commission of Korea to the City Hall and the Press center before returning to the Plaza in time for the musical closing event. The event gave an excellent opportunity to exhibit the work that is being done as well as the work which remains to be done for women’s rights in Korea and the world.


Little Travellers at Wild Women Performing Arts Festival

January 2009

On Saturday January 17th Little Travellers went wild at the Wild Women's Performing Arts Festival. This event was held at Club (Ta) to raise funds for the Korean Women's Associations United (KWAU), which is promoting Women's human rights and gender equality throughout Korea. The KWAU is an umbrella organization whose members include the Korean Sexual Violence Relief Center, Korea Women's Hotline and Differently-Abled Women's United. At the event, a diverse mix of female singers, poets, musicians and dancers were performing on stage, while Little Traveller volunteers sold pins and distributed information about the organization as well as the Hillcrest AIDS Center. The great number of visitors all but challenged the venue's capacity and made the festival a big success.

1월 17일 토요일 Little Travellers가 여성들만의 공연축체 Wild Women's Performing Arts Festival에 참가하였습니다.
이 행사는 홍대 클럽 타()에서 한국여성단체연합을 위한 기금마련을 위해 열렸습니다. 한국여성단체연합은 한국 여성들의 여권 신장과 한국 내 성평등 문화 정착을 위해
일하는 단체이며 성폭력 상담소, 여성의 전화, 여성 장애우연합 등을 통해 여성들의 방패막이가 되어주고 있습니다. 이 행사에서는 여성 가수와 시인, 뮤지션, 댄서들이
다양한 무대를 보여주었고 LittleTraveller봉사자들은 비즈핀을 판매하고 힐크레스트 에이즈센터(Hilcrest AIDS Center)와 LittleTraveller의 정보를 담은 팜플렛을 배포
하였습니다. 많은 손님에 비해 공간이 부족하긴 했지만 행사는 대 성공이었습니다.

Rubber Seoul Raises 12 million won for Little Travellers and Grassroots Uganda!

December 2008

In honor of the 20th World AIDS Day, Little Travellers unleashed their biggest event yet with Rubber Seoul, a four-venue concert event that raised over 11 million won for the organization and event partners Grassroots Uganda.

Held on Saturday, Dec. 6, more than 1,000 dolls were purchased by Koreans and foreigners alike at Hongdae clubs DGBDs, FF Club, Jane's Groove and Sensations. Each venue hosted live music and DJs, all who volunteered their time for the widely successful event.

Rubber Seoul was made possible by a huge collection of volunteers, business donations and dedicated organizations that formed the Korean Commission for World AIDS Day, an ad hoc group created solely for this event. During the day, Korean group CLIP and Youth CLIP hosted a lecture series at Hongik University. At night, patrons paid 10,000 won for a Little Travellers pin, a necklace from Grassroots Uganda and entrance into all four clubs. Early in the night, all the venues were packed with crowds eager to see their favorite local bands and DJs.

A huge success was had for all the groups involved, especially Little Travellers. We were able to sell our dolls extensively throughout the night, distribute condoms and information about HIV/AIDS and further raise money for the women of the Hillcrest AIDS Centre.

We'd also like to thank all those that donated their time and money to making this event a grand success. Your efforts will make an indelible impact.

World AIDS Day Street Campaign

November 2008

On a cold November day, the Little Travellers joined Youth Clip in front of Duksu Palace in Central Seoul to further awareness of HIV/AIDS. Although South Korea has a relatively low population of people living with HIV/AIDS (approximately 4300 people), the infection rate is steadily increasing and discrimination is rife. ABC news reported on the event noting that 30% of AIDS patients in Korea have committed suicide while in a recent survey, 45% of Koreans commented they would not send their child to the same school as an AIDS patient.

Youth Clip is as student group aimed at taking action on global issues such as HIV/AIDS. Over 30 volunteers braved the cold weather in a demonstration for 'Overcoming Bias and Discrimination'. Educational materials provided by KHAP was distributed while Little Travellers, Grassroots Uganda necklaces and Global Care cell phone accessories were sold to raise funds for those affected by HIV/AIDS in South Africa, Uganda, and Kenya respectively.

It was a successful event combining the importance of education in Korea with support for victims in less developed African nations.
