Divas Abroad


Divas Abroad, hosted by DivaGirl and Sexy & Wealthy in Heels, is our internationally women’s empowerment initiative.  We offer a volunteer trip experience to educate and empower women internationally.

Divas Abroad was created by Laura Furtado in January 2015.  The program offers an annual group trip (in which fundraising initiatives will take place to attempt to cover basic costs), in which a selected group of women from the DivaGirl and Sexy & Wealthy in Heels communities are welcome to apply and attend.

What is the Purpose of Divas Abroad?

The purpose of the volunteer experience is bring a group of women together, who collectively work as a “board” to provide classes, workshops and exercises to educate empower other women internationally. As a team, we create the curriculum, plan fundraising initiatives, executing fundraising and raise funds to enable this experience. We encourage all participants to also fundraise on their own (in the past, many participants fundraised their entire trip).  The purpose of this program is to educate and empower women; both the women organizing the trip (working together as a collective) and the women we will connect across the border.  Your trip costs that must be covered include flight, accommodation, meals, program fee, transportation, etc.; Divas Abroad creates a seamless program in which the entire experience is packaged, scheduled and delivered, in 3-5 easy payments.

Why Participate in Divas Abroad?


Divas Abroad allows women in our community to give back, share their knowledge, learn another culture, and attend a life-changing trip.  Throughout the journey, each participant goes through life coaching, reflection and transformation, led by our facilitators; you will travel for change. Divas Abroad is also a great experience for women to travel abroad, learn a new culture and meet new people, all with a professional planned curriculum, including trip outings and tours.

What Others Are Saying About the Experience

  • This year Divas Abroad was amazing! Coming in with an open mind, allowed me absorb the culture and learn from the people of Nepal. We come from different places but so much unites us. Grasping the opportunity to volunteer in another country is one all us should take at least once. Each person you interact with will teach you something new and the memories you gain will stick with you forever.  Alisha
  • My experience with a Divas Abroad is one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. If you love to travel and help others, this is the best program for you. The best part about the program is the passionate women in the program with you, everyone supported each other. When women come together and support each other, amazing things happen.
  • I cannot say enough about how a wonderful trip this was.  Divas Abroad is truly a once in a lifetime experience.  This was my 2nd year being part of the team and I cannot wait to see where we go and what we accomplish next year!  Davida
  • Divas Abroad organized a fantastic women’s mission experience for all women involved. Jill & Laura’s attention to detail, professionalism and willingness to go the extra mile really sets Divas Abroad apart from any other women’s mission experience. No stone is left unturned in the planning and being a part of the experience means you are a part of a team. I recommend that if you are a woman looking to give back abroad, that you join Divas Abroad in 2017 and beyond.  Majet
