WOMEN EARN AND SAVE MONEY
Why it matters: Learning how to earn money, receiving a monthly stipend, and setting aside savings gives women the ability to provide for their family's needs and invest in a new future.
WOMEN DEVELOP HEALTH AND WELL-BEING
Why it matters: Basic health education and connecting with local care providers enables women to best protect their and their family's well-being.
WOMEN INFLUENCE DECISIONS IN THEIR HOMES AND COMMUNITIES
Why it matters: Learning about the equal rights of women and men gives women greater confidence to raise their voices on the issues affecting their lives.
WOMEN CREATE AND CONNECT TO NETWORKS FOR SUPPORT
Why it matters: Connecting with other women is a source of strength and provides new social and economic opportunities for growth.
We are also working to engage the men in these communities as partners and allies in women’s social and economic empowerment.
By targeting male relatives, religious, and community leaders, Women for Women International is facilitating critical dialogues that are changing discriminatory attitudes and behaviours toward women.
