The work and message behind Human and Hope and HHA Cambodia is incredibly important. Take part this healthy April to walk collectively to Cambodia with me and all the absolutely amazing people joining in.

Jo Ryan and Teresa Sepede a.k.a Project EnKo are both corporates by day and dance fitness instructors every other time.
Jo works in HR for Rabobank in Sydney’s CBD, with Tee just down the road marketing the health portfolio for Torrens University Australia.
Both ladies became close 8 years ago when Tee moved over from the UK and they started dancing in a professional Latin team together. In that time they have performed at various events and festivals, won national championships, danced in production “Feathered and Fierce” at Sydney’s Fringe festival and since, been instructing together for the last 3 years.
Outside of dancing and corporate life, both ladies are big on self-care and discussing the latest documentaries and podcasts they have encountered over coffee or cocktails…. mainly Jo enlightens Tee! Jo likes to practice wellbeing and mindfulness while exploring all things yoga and science! Tee is obsessed with crime TV, her plant family and visiting the nail salon.
Their love for dance, fitness, Latin music and community is what brings together Project Enko. With mental health being a topic close to both thier hearts, their mission is to: exercise the mind, strengthen the body and lift the spirit.
“Our space is about no judgements, feeding the soul, smiling through the sweat and leaving with a happy heart. No matter where you are from, our purpose is to help others feel healthy and happy.
Human and Hope’s vision for empowerment, equality and social change strongly aligns with our values, which is why we are very honoured to be a part of this worthy cause and help share the incredible work Human and Hope does.
Come and join us this April and let’s dance together for the people of Cambodia.”
