Investing in Women in Extreme Poverty
The harsh reality for women in our world today:
Women comprise 70 percent of the world’s poorest people
1 in 5 girls are unable to go to school
2 in 5 women are victims of violence
There are more human slaves in the world today than ever before in history; most of these are women and girls.
Inspired by faith, we take action to stand against this injustice, and celebrate the hope we can give to our sisters across the globe. Our goal is to empower women worldwide and create positive changes by sharing a little of the opportunities that we have been given so that we can help change HER story and she can change HER world.
