Women are the backbones of societies and communities across the globe. In developing countries, women are often expected to perform all of the household duties, all of the child rearing duties, and all of the agricultural duties, while remaining powerless in their community or family.
If women were empowered to contribute financially to their families and communities, our world would be a very different place. When half of a country’s population is not given basic opportunities to develop their potential, the entire nation will suffer and conditions of poverty will persist.
We believe that by giving women the tools they need to become their own heroes, we will see healthier families and healthier communities. We will see nations prosper in new ways. And we will see the shining power that women have to make our planet a better place.
