About Us

Hello, world!

Welcome to continnect. Taking its steps into the world of digital magazines, continnect aims at ‘connecting continents’, taking you on a journey- around the world through the eyes of women. Each month, continnect will bring you a collection of stories. We’ll tell you about women explorers, about women who are inspiring others every day, about women who are taking on that brave entrepreneurial start up step. Each month we’ll also focus on one organization that is helping women around the world to live a better life.  ‘continnect’ aims to inform, inspire and involve women from around the world.

Here’s what we cover
