Everything Woman . . . it's all about us


We saw the New Year in with great optimism for our expansion. We have two conferences planned for this year and we also role out our Gender Ambassador Abuse Training, our Health and Well-Being Training and also our Women Empowering Women Training.

We love training. We believe in training. Training is the way forward to building confidence and self-esteem, up skilling and nourishment for your potential. WIN is in the process of getting those three training courses accredited by CPD so once you've completed one of our training you'll receive a certificate that is recognised by employers.
Our Black Woman Heal workshops begins in April. We are really looking forward to this because we will be working in partnership with Maendeleo Services, CAM Women and Girls Organisation, Kentic Roots and Instrumental Health to run this year long programme to get women informed and managing their health.

We have the Health Story-Teller, Hasna DeFour who is a breast cancer survivor and bold enough to share her story and her challenges. Herbal Practitioner, Marion Makkonen will be facilitating workshops around alternative health and eating to live. Guest speakers and facilitators will be covering topics such as Lupus, Diabetes, Stress, Trauma and Fibroid among others, and the events will be chaired by Rasheda Ashanti. 

For WIN, this year has everything to do with promoting the well-being and economic empowerment of women, so join us in celebrating and acknowledging your potential.

A Woman of Substance . . . Michele D Moore 

British born Radio Producer/Host, Consultant and Entrepreneur Michele d Moore migrated from London to Jamaica to escape the rat race, live a better quality of life and create the lifestyle she always desired.

Recognising the need to assist those returning home, she created Home and Away Jamaica; a platform to strengthen the connection between Jamaica and the Diaspora and provide a reputable service for those migrating or building a home in Jamaica. The returnee entrepreneur shines light on returnee businesses on the island and passionately promotes Jamaica as a destination to live, work and invest.

She is also a Senior Event Manager with 9 years international event management experience.  Since migrating to Jamaica, she has further developed her skills and also works as a Project Manager, Mentor and Freelance Writer.


Totally infused with female creative energy, First Lady Touch invites you on a journey of self-care, self-awareness, self-development and self-love. Are you noticing a lot of 'SELF' around here - that's intentional. 'SELF' is an important part of YOU. In fact we would go as far as to say that, SELF is the most important part of you. 

So what are you going to do for SELF? We got a few suggestions to start. We're going to create moments and time to pamper and love ourselves. Spa days out, fun nights out, debate evenings, Soul talk weekends, away weekends . . . and so much more. Eat, Pray, Love . . . We're heading your way soon. 

"Any inner voice that attacks you in any way doesn't come from your higher SELF."

Rhona Baker . . . AKA Bionic Rhona . . . RIP
1980s Reggae DJ Bionic Rhona, best known for her number 1 hit 'To the Bump' with Papa Face sadly and suddenly passed away on the 24th February, in her sleep.

For those who knew her she was a true 'Angel' who came with gifts and good advice. Mothers, many of them single would go to her because of her way with 'telling it like it is' to children. She had an open house full of food, love and music and she would welcome you like an old friend, even after meeting you for the first time.

For WIN, Rhona facilitated at our Black Woman Heal Day, sharing her own health and relationship journey with women and girls, so we couldn't let this International Women's Month past and not salute her and the awesome inspiring work she did.

Rhona . . . we miss you. Live on.
