Hermosas Chispas is a small space to explore the question, ¨How can I do good, impactful work, and not burnout in the process?¨
“Self-care is not a separate task, but it is how we do our work.”
We believe that we need to change the way we do good – make it holistic, reflective and compassionate, not just for the communities we work with but also for ourselves. Good work and self-care are inextricably linked. It´s hard to have one without the other.
We focus on working with women because we are a feminist space. We believe in the power of women working with and for women.
Hermosas Chispas aims to provide powerful ideas, support and tools so women can take action on what matters and thrive. Find out more about us.
My name is Pip Bennett and I am the woman behind Hermosas Chispas. I was in the international development sector for ten years and now work in community development in New Zealand, my home country. My speciality is youth voice and participation. I am obsessed with the connections between activism, good practice and self-care. I don´t buy into the idea that burnout means we care more or that we have done a good job. It´s time to look at the way we´re working. Find out more about me.
Whether it is to talk business, to brainstorm better ways for activism, or just to say hello, feel free to drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. I´d love to hear from you.
