Nancy ‘Oxfordshire’s Most Inspirational Woman’ 2014
November 2014

The vision of the Venus Awards is to enhance the lives of women around the world through encouragement and self- empowerment. The awards seeks to recognise and reward local business women across the country.

We’re thrilled to announce that our very own Nancy Hunt (joint founder of The Nasio Trust) was awarded the accolade of “Oxfordshire’s Most Inspirational Woman”.

When we caught up with her (and she had finally managed to calm down!), she had this to say…

“I just want to thank every person young and old who believe in what we do and inspire us to keep going even when things are really tough. We couldn’t do what we do without your support and prayers. Thank you so much for inspiring us. This is all for you. God bless. Nancy xx”

"I had no hope of being educated but now have the chance to access education, food, clothing and medication. I will work hard and dream to become a builder, to construct homes for people who don’t have shelter."
