A group of young professional women are looking to make their mark on the world by improving birthing standards in some of the poorest countries.
With up to 12 members aged between 25 and 55, the Wollundry Inner Wheel team is the newest and youngest of its kind in Wagga.
For their first fundraiser, the women are hoping to raise $1000 before the end of September, to go towards assembling birthing kits to be sent to poverty-stricken countries.
Elise Bowen is one of the group's founding members and is coordinating the fundraising effort.
"Hygiene and cleanliness are the biggest factors causing problems for underprivileged women," Ms Bowen said.
"We've been trying to think of ways to build our profile and make a difference, and we've come up with this fundraising idea. We're looking to buy 200 kits, which are roughly $5 per kit."
Approaching local businesses with their fundraising idea has presented some complexity given the current economic crisis.
But, Ms Bowen said the businesses are welcome to support the cause in any way they can.
"More than anything we're hoping it's an exercise in gaining awareness," she said.
"Maybe they can't give financially but they can put our flyer in their tea room and that will hopefully attract some new members. We're interested in building friendships and extending our reach."
