WOMEN'S EMPOWERMENT

THE SITUATION

Women hold the keys to a future world freed from hunger and poverty. By supporting women’s education and empowerment, we are equipping them to become better farmers and providing assistance to those displaced by conflict. Whether its starting a new business in Nepal, getting access to education in India, understanding the power of health and wellness in Malawi, or being educated on HIV/AIDS awareness and preventive measures in Kenya – these are just a few examples of the kinds of opportunities thousands of women in developing countries all over the world are now getting access to. As mothers, farmers, teachers, educators, care givers and entrepreneurs, a great deal hinges on their success. There is strong evidence showing that with equal access to education, training and means, women can raise the living standards of their families and inject new life into the local community and economy.

The volunteer programs we offer will provide you with opportunities to work with rural women that were never given access to any kind of education in their lifetime. The aim of our programs is to educate and empower women to understand the benefits of personal hygiene and care, teach them how to perform basic calculations, learn new skills like using a computer, knitting and/or stitching, as well as other beneficial life skills. By empowering local women to do so, it provides them with new skills to be able to analyze their own situations and use acquired knowledge to make changes where they see necessary. One of the programs we offer teaches volunteers how to stitch and tailor bags to create jewellery that can be sold at local markets which generates income. These are valuable skills that can easily be learned and taught and it allows the volunteers to reach out to local communities and teach their newly acquired skills to women that are in need of extra income. By doing so, it empowers women to pursue their quest to be financially independent and enables them to better provide for their families or future families.
