In order to create a social impact on a global level, Open Growth Media ventured into a flagship media property called Fuzia, which is an online networking community and a global platform to showcase your talent and skills- be it stories, blogs, poetry, photographs, articles, fashion, art, craft, videos or designs! Along with building one another through creative expression, experiential learning, and mutual support.
The platform is open to every individual, both men and women who support the cause of women empowerment, feminism, equality and mutual support/upliftment. Fuzia believes in “she for she” and “he for she” and also consider in the fact that true ‘Empowerment’ is incomplete without men supporting it. Moreover, they deem that an empowered woman is a happy woman and they support ‘Happiness’ through 6 key elements, which are garnering relationships and friendships, learning and education, engagement and activities, wellness, charity and giving back and financial independence.
