Why Women?

Women form more than half of the world’s population, but the reality for most women, whether in the developing or developed world, is that equality is not a part of their daily reality. We support the women of Africa with skill development, life skills, and knowledge building so they can take charge of their futures and take a more active role in their communities and countries. The women in our program use the knowledge and skills they learn to create opportunities that not only improve their lives but also the lives of their families. They are able to unlock the potential for their communities to value gender equality and values that will contribute to a more equal society.
