Christine Amour-Levar is a Philanthropist, Adventurer, Entrepreneur and Author. A passionate advocate of women’s leadership and empowerment, Christine set up ‘Women on a Mission’(WOAM) and ‘HER Planet Earth’ - two award-winning, not-for-profit organisations she co-founded and founded in 2012 and 2017 respectively - to take all-female teams on pioneering expeditions to off the beaten track locations around the world as a way to support worthy causes. HER Planet Earth's primary objective is to raise awareness and funds for underprivileged women affected by climate change, while WOAM aims to support and empower women who have been subjected to violence and abuse.
Christine also opened the first multi-brand fashion retail store in South East Asia in 2007, Beijaflor which was located in Singapore. Since, selling her retail business in 2011, she has authored and co-authored several books over the last few years like The Smart Girl’s Handbook to Being Mummylicious, DISRUPT 3.0. Filipina Women: Rising, and Humanity. Today, she is also a Consultant and Advisor in the areas of Sports, Sustainability and Tech for Impact.
Ultimately, closest to Christine’s heart is her advocacy work for women and the environment, and she considers herself fortunate to have found a way to bring together her passion for sports and adventure with her desire to impact the world in a positive way.
