Six leading businesswomen were challenged to perform three minutes of stand up comedy in front of a paying audience in The Dram Comedy Venue, Glasgow on the evening of 11th August. Each of the challengers got support and coaching from the Funny Women team ahead of their comedy debut.

The evening helped raise funds to help trafficked women in India. HIV/AIDS is growing across India and in the state of Karnataka in South India and in particular among ‘Devadasi’. They are young girls from poor Dalit families who are ‘dedicated’ to the goddess Yellamma and then used in the practice of socially and religiously sanctioned prostitution.

We would like to help make a difference in a small way by raising funds towards helping the Good Shepherd Healthcare team to establish a mobile health unit that will go out into the villages around the Yellamma temple and can offer good medical care and nutrition to those who are often too unwell to travel for help.
