Seeds of Affinity

Seeds of Affinity - Pathways for Women Incorporated was started by a group of South Australian women with lived prison experience.  Members of Seeds of Affinity work together to challenge the stigmatization faced by women leaving prison.  Seeds of Affinity members build a community where women feel a sense of belonging, solidarity and self worth. 

Seeds of Affinity is well known for its line of home made beauty products manufactured by members and used to fund activities.
