Who was Tara Hunt?
Tara Hunt was Co -CEO and a director of 1MW. She was also a philanthropist. A special kind of philanthropist, a hands-on type who gave money but also gave of herself. We lost her beautiful soul to cancer on the 28th of May, 2017.Strong and passionate, Tara never stopped believing in the power of women to change the world. She worked tirelessly to mobilise everyone she could in the fight against climate change.
Her deep love for the planet inspired and energised us all. Tara loved 1 Million Women so much. Nat (1MW Founder) and Tara talked a lot about this fellowship before she passed away and it has been made possible through the generous donations from her friends, family and the 1MW community. This fellowship is to honour Tara and to help others discover their connection and love for our earth.
