We care about Community
Relocating and moving your family to a new country can be a daunting experience, and every day challenges can become overwhelming. The goal of Jody is to provide new families with access to a supportive community who have all been through the same experiences.
This is how Aegeri High Heels (AHH) community was created.
We feel once a family is settled and supported they will then have the support to venture more into the local community by joining clubs, attending events and feeling connected.
When relocating to a new country we need to learn about our new home; and it is just as important to understand the culture & beliefs, as it is to learn where to find the grocery store.
Ägeri High Heels was founded on 2012 and is a community of people who willingly share their knowledge, experience and friendships to those who need it, whether you have been in Ägeri for 5 minutes, or 5 years.
Take a deep breath, trust in yourself – we got you!
Jody has helped international families relocating into Ägeri Valley since 2012 through the Ägeri High Heels Community. She has been provided a platform for relocating women and their families to connect with other families who are going through, or have been through, similar challenges.
Ägeri High Heels uses a private Facebook group as a forum for conversation and support as well as a What's app chat. New members can apply to join both.
All the events, activities and programs are aimed at bringing women together and providing them with the opportunity to find their tribe, settle into their new community, and build life-long friendships along the way.

Our Channels for Communication
Ägeri - We Care
The What's app group is a new addition. We have created it to meet the needs of those who are not using Facebook as way to still receive information on events and information on things happening in our area. To join Whats app email firstname.lastname@example.org
Ägeri High Heels Network
The Facebook group is a private group where members can ask questions and receive support in a private place. Facebook allows a post to receive input from the member group and is stored for future resource. Common topics of discussion are where to find things when first relocating to what school to choose for your children.
Here we share photos and information on events happening in the Aegeri Valley community.
